Hi Doctor - Curious as to what your thoughts are on this subject. Here's my factual situation. Life insurance exam done on[u] 11/9/18: Blood - BUN 14 mg/dl; creatinine .9 mg/dl. Urine (spot test) - Protein 11 mg; creatinine 164.9 mg/dl; protein/creatinine (URI) .07; negative for Leukocyte & Hemoglobin.
Had a Chest ct scan w/contrast done on 11/14/18 after an x-ray showed a nodule on my lung. Omnipaque 300 used at 80 ml dose.
Lab results on 11/15/18 - done on an unrelated ER visit. Blood - Bun 17 mg/dl; creatinine 1.25 mg/dl
Went to nephrologist last week and he is doing a complete renal panel blood/urine. Obviously, quite anxious about results. He seems to think CIN likely.
My review of the literature indicates I had little or no risk - 53, non-diabetic, no high blood pressure, GFR per life insurance was estimated at 118; low dose of contract, no other risk factors.
I've read numerous articles/studies but conclusions are diverse to say the least.
Do you believe CIN to be real?
Thanks for any imput. Will update you on my test results which I hope to have soon.
