Explanation Of Urea Examination Results?
Good evening doctor, I want to ask; Ureum: 68Creatinine: 1.8 Does this include chronic kidney disease and is it already very dangerous? and whether it can be cured / can be normal again. Thank you, doctor.
Good morning Heru, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Under normal conditions, the amount of urea in the body is <30 mg / dL and creatinine is around 0.6-1.2 mg / dL.
An increase in the amount of urea and creatinine in the blood is generally caused by damage to the kidneys such as acute kidney failure or chronic kidney failure.
However, to ascertain whether this increase is caused by a chronic kidney failure or not, another examination is needed and also an evaluation of the patient's condition whether or not it leads to a chronic kidney failure due to the diagnostic criteria of chronic kidney failure not only based on the results urea examination and creatinine only, so that if only based on the results of the examination that you wrote above, it can only be concluded that the patient did indeed experience impaired kidney function but it is not yet determined what the disorder is experiencing.
Therefore, the results should be consulted back to the doctor who suggested the patient perform the examination to be re-evaluated with the results of the examination on the patient's complaints and physical condition.
Regarding dangerous or not, everything returns to the diagnosis of the cause of the kidney disorder, but if indeed later the patient is proven to suffer from chronic kidney failure, it should be understood that the damage is permanent and kidney function will continue to decline over time. The recommended therapy is only intended to help reduce the speed of the addition of kidney damage.
I hope this helps.
