Blood Urine And Creatinine Levels Are High At The Age Of 22 Years, Can It Go Down?
Hello, good afternoon. 2 days ago I was tested for blood and the results were very surprising. Blood volume reaches 231 and creatinine 17. Because of disbelief I tried a comparison elsewhere to check blood. The result was the same as ureum 200 and creatinine 16.63. A little story I check blood because at that time my father saw my face was pale. After consulting a doctor and bringing the results of a blood check I was told to HD, and the doctor said it had entered the stage of chronic kidney failure. But when viewed from the symptoms of kidney failure, I did not feel any special complaints. Only nausea interferes. Urinating smoothly and never blood comes out / weird. The leg is not swollen. But right now I haven’t had an ultrasound test. I am only 22 years old. The question is maybe this is just poison that settles in my body? And can my urea and creatinine go down? Thanks.
Hello Abdul, Thank you for the question.
Kidney is an organ that functions to dispose of the body's metabolic results through urine. Ureum and creatinine are metabolic waste products in the body that will be removed by the kidneys through urine and can be found in small amounts in the blood. Urea and creatinine measurements in the blood are done to assess kidney function. If the kidney function is disrupted, the disposal of urea and creatinine will be disrupted and the amount will increase in the blood. The cause of increased levels of ureum and creatinine is kidney failure which can be acute or chronic. Acute kidney failure is a sudden kidney dysfunction, which can be caused by:
kidney stone infections glomerulonephritis side effects drugs and other chronic kidney failure is a decrease in kidney function that occurs over a gradual period of time. The following are some of the causes of chronic kidney failure:
uncontrolled hypertension of diabetes with uncontrolled blood sugar levels glomerulonephritis kidney infection polycystic kidney disease disorders of the renal arteries and others To find out the cause of kidney failure that you experience is indeed needed further tests which can be blood tests, urine tests, ultrasound, CT scan, or kidney biopsy. If you are still unsure, do not hesitate to ask for a second opinion from another specialist in internal medicine. Usually you will still be encouraged to undergo further tests to find the cause of kidney failure so that it can be treated immediately. You should not underestimate the results of this examination so that your condition can be treated immediately and not cause further complications.
Hopefully this information is useful.
