Dental infections: Dental infection can harm your health. Yes, it may cause bad breath, a sense of malaise, and lack of appetite are possible symptoms. It would be best if you were evaluated by a dentist and also by your primary care provider for other possible causes of your symptoms.

Renal Disease: BUN (Blood Urea Nitrogen) and Cr (Creatinine) are blood markers used to measure kidney function. The values presented are indicative of poor kidney function and need further evaluation. Urinary retention is an abnormal finding that can lead to kidney disease. Further workup is needed to determine the cause of retention. You must exert caution with all medications. Do consult with your MD.
