hi, I want to ask the results of Uren N 5.7 ( 6-20 ) , Ureum 12 (13-43), Creatinine 0.63 (0.50-0.90), eLFG(CKD-EPI) 117 are these results normal? Or is there a kidney infection?
Hello Tb. Arfan, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Kidney is one of the important organs in the human body, one of its very important functions is the excretory system of the body's metabolic waste. Healthy kidneys will remove waste and fluids from the blood, to carry out their functions optimally, the kidneys must be healthy, therefore it is important to detect kidney function so that damage that occurs to the kidneys can be detected early, some kidney function tests are:
Urea, is the product of protein catabolism that was first used, normal urea levels are 17-56 mg/dl Creatinine, is the end product of creatine metabolism, the reference value is 0.6 - 1.3 mg/dl for men and 0.5 - 1.0 mg/dl for women GFR is the glomerular filtration rate, to measure the level of kidney function and determine the stage of kidney disease, the normal value is 90-120 ml/min. When viewed from the value you wrote above, this value is still within the normal range, however, you must consult the results of the examination to the doctor who advised you to do the examination, because the conclusion of the diagnosis of a disease is not only based on one supporting examination, several other supporting examinations are still needed, and must be based on a physical examination as well.
Some suggestions for you to keep your kidneys healthy
Drink plenty of water Low salt diet Low carbohydrate or sugar diet Regular exercise Avoid instant drinks or drinks that contain preservatives Read articles about kidney disease
