Results Of Kidney Function Tests?

Good night. I want to ask about the lab results of my mother’s kidney examination, albumin results 4.70 g / dl, globulin 2.30 g / dl, blood urea L 18 mg / dl, blood creatinine H 1.11 mg / dl, eGFR 57.6 ml / min / 1.73 m ^ 2. How are my mother’s kidneys functioning? Is it still functioning properly? Previously, I had consulted with a urologist, and it was stated that it was okay. Thank you

Hi.

Kidney failure is a disease in which there is a decline in kidney function. The kidneys have a role to filter blood and fluids that will be excreted through urine. In kidney failure, the kidneys cannot filter properly so that there can be an increase in urea and creatinine levels in the blood.

From the examination that your mother experienced, the urea level was 18 mg / dL, and creatinine was 1.1 mg / dL, then it was still normal. However, to determine your mother's kidney function, you must know your mother's weight and age.

From the tests your mother did, the eGFR shows an estimate of kidney function, eGFR 57.6 indicates a moderate decrease in kidney function. However, this often occurs in people with old age. therefore, consult directly with a specialist who examines your mother, so that the doctor can determine the condition of your mother more precisely.
