Hello, I want to ask about the result of my 78-year-old mother, her ureum is 32, her creatinine is 0.87 and her LFG is 65. How does her kidney function like this? thank you

1 Answer:

Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.


Kidney function can be assessed based on the rate of filtration (filtration) of functional units, namely glomerulus. Estimated glomerular filtration rate (LFG) is calculated based on serum creatinine levels, sex, age, and race. Normally, the glomerular filtration rate is above 90 mL / min / 1.73 m2. The normal range of serum creatinine levels in women is 0.5 - 1.1 ng / mL. This reference number may differ slightly between laboratories due to differences in the inspection machines, reagents, and inspection techniques used.


Based on the data you submitted, it appears that your mother's serum creatinine levels are in the normal range. Meanwhile, mild impairment of kidney function was seen based on estimated LFG. However, this cannot be used as the basis for diagnosis. The renal function laboratory examination is a supplementary examination whose interpretation must be based on the patient's clinical condition, which is assessed through history taking and physical examination by the doctor who treats the patient directly. To obtain a more accurate interpretation of the laboratory examination, you are advised to consult directly with the doctor who treats your mother. Doctors who deal with patients certainly have more complete clinical information about the patient's condition so that they are more authorized to provide interpretations of the results of supporting examinations.


Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
