My kidney function test show low levels of urea,  13.00 mg/dl.

Not a problem: The reference range for urea is the level for most folks who are not obviously sick. Low serum urea is never a problem. If you're obviously sick with something else, it may provide a clue -- but probably not. I hope you're not restricting dietary protein for some reason. "treat the person, not the numbers" -- but i'm glad you're asking and remaining proactive. ...Read more

What's BUN?: BUN stands for blood urea nitrogen. Urea nitrogen is what forms when protein breaks down and it not used by itself to identify patients with kidney disease. BUN is elevated in cases of dehydration as well as kidney disease. Serum creatinine (C) is a better determinant of kidney function. If the BUN C ratio is > 20, the patient may be dehydrated. The normal range of B is 7-20 mg/dl. ...Read more

How i can reduce urea in my body(kidney)? Thanks

How i can reduce urea in my body(kidney)? Thanks

Eat Less Protein: If your urea, your "bun" --blood urea nitrogen, is high, it means your kidneys are damaged or failing. The urea is a waste product of the breakdown of dietary protein or the protein in your own muscles and tissues, so you can lower it by eating exactly the amount of protein they need each day. This may be as low as 0.3 grams of dietary protein per kilogram ideal body weight per day. ...Read more

High creatinine: Your results show you to have far advanced chronic kidney disease and possibly kidney failure. You should ask the doctor who ordered to the blood work to send you to a nephrologist who will order a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein and have blood taken when you return the urine. A renal ultrasound will also need to be done to see the size and morphology of your kidneys. Good luck. ...Read more
