Ureum Increases And Creatinine Is Normal?
I want to ask the doctor, my blood ureum is 48, but the creatinine is normal, what should I be experiencing?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Ureum is a residual substance from protein metabolism that should be discharged through the kidneys. An increase in urea without being accompanied by an increase in creatinine can be caused by several possibilities, including:
severe dehydration (for example due to lack of drinking, excessive heat exposure, diarrhea or excessive vomiting, etc.) bleeding in large amounts in rapid time disorders of the heart (heart failure) severe infections (sepsis shock) bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract excessive protein consumption side effects of certain drugs etc. You should bring the results of the examination back to the doctor who suggests that the examination be done so that it can be further evaluated. These results also need to be matched with your clinical symptoms and also the results of a physical examination conducted by your doctor.
For now, you can try to drink more fluids (at least 2-3 liters a day) to help improve your kidney function, so that your kidneys can also get rid of more urea. You should continue to see a doctor.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
