Today I received an e-mail from Tom Oates. Apparently, when he is not researching the unique genetic predisposition of the WKY rat to crescentic glomerulonephritis he is an avid reader of both Hemodialysis International and PBFluids. He sent me this article in Hemodialysis International regarding the highest creatinine ever. The key sentence in the article:
Extremely high levels of serum creatinine have been reported in the literature.3 The highest level of serum creatinine reported was 37 mg/dL.3So what is the highest previous creatinine reported in the literature? Well according to the author, Said Abuhasna, it's 37 from this post at PBFluids. Nice to see blogs being included in the canon of medical literature. Though it would be even nicer if they spelled my name right.
