I went to see my family doctor earlier today. There I was, all concerned about my high creatinine clearance result, but he explained to me that it was a GOOD thing. Eh? Oh yes, it turns out that I had mixed up serum creatinine and creatinine clearance, duuuh…Hmmm, well, as George Bernard Shaw said, A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent in doing nothing. Although I do hope that I won’t make MANY more mistakes!
At any rate, by George (pun intended)!, my doctor is right! The following, taken from Labtestsonline (a very helpful website: http://www.labtestsonline.org/), clears up matters a bit:
In sum, high serum creatinine = bad; high creatinine clearance (from a 24-hour urine test) = good. I will not get that mixed up again!
My doctor looked over my tests and agreed with me that the way to go is: C3 Complex curcumin with bioperine. Next set of tests will tell more of the story. In the meantime, I going to enjoy my lovely spring flowers, as you can see. Well, right now I have to do some work, actually. Off I go!
