What Causes High Urea Levels
Liver failure (as in cirrhosis) leads to fluid retention which in turn may cause sodium to drop. Urea elevations occur when the perfusion of the kidneys is not efficient, or there is a bleed in the gastrointestinal tract (as may happen in people with cirrhosis and bleeding in this area)
My mother is 82 years old. She suffers from hypertension recently she had a blood test with high urea serum level 64 mg is it risky?
Maybe: Blood urea nitrogen on a lab chemistry test is a protein metabolism waste product that is normally removed by the kidneys through the urine. High BUN levels can be due problems like dehydration, kidney or heart failure, etc... With a leukemia, if many of the bad cells are suddenly destroyed with treatment, one can get a tumor lysis syndrome in which decreased kidney function can cause high bun. ...Read more
What to do if I have a high urea, uric acid, cholesterol, triglycerides in my blood test. Are there any home remedies to reduce these?
Absolutely not: Diet and exercise have relatively small influence on cholesterol and virtually no influence on uric acid levels. If you lipids are elevated, consider starting a statin. Lowering your cholesterol should also lower your uric acid level. If the absence of gout or kidney stones, a elevated uric acid means very little. ...Read more
My father (60 yrs) is a Gout patient. Suffering now from high Urea concentrate. He did 8 dialysis so far. Kidneys are fine, but Urea still the same?
If I scratch the skin, immediately I get rashes. (i had some skin allergy a year back)whether the pain is due to high urea in blood?
Blood work done these are the results Urea nitrogen 22.2 high Urea nitrogen / creatinine 20.6 high Being a hep c patient Concern or not?
Creatinine level?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your test results may be normal. You did not provide creatinine level but by calculating from the data you gave it is 1.08 and it is normal. You do not need to worry about these results. Do take treatment for Hep C as it is curable ...Read more

Uriine-urythocytes high, ketones 20, leukocyte esters large, leukocytes 40, nitrates positive. In blood-leukocytes high, urea nitrogen low. Am I dying?
You have a uti: When a urinalysis shows large Leukocytes and nitrites positive you have a urinary tract infection and need antibiotics pending the culture report. On your blood test, you said leukocytes high which indicates infection. If you have fever and chills and back pain, could be kidney infection and may need treatment at Emergency Room now. You are not dying, but need urgent treatment ...Read more
9 year old has severe headaches daily. Neurological tests & ct normal. Blood test low sodium, low haemoglobin and high urea. Drinks plenty fluids.?
Check kidney status:
With low hemoglobin, high urea I would make sure kidneys are functioning well, Check BP IF not checked already, have the eyes tested as well.
**BUN/creatinine level is 54.7**??? urea nitrogen is 29, creatinine is 0.53, eGFR is 128, potassium is 4.4. Cause for concern? I literally cannot find anything anywhere about a BUN/creatinine level that high.
BUN/GFR 54.7: I would not worry. It is a ratio-calculated value. Your BUN is 29 (normal < 20) but that could be due to either mild dehydration or high protein in body (unless you are actively bleeding). Your creatinine is 0.53 which is great. The ratio is BUN/Cr 29/0.53 = 54.7. Your GFR another number we look seriously at is 128 great, potassium is 4.4 normal. Do not worry it is an artifact of the math ...Read more
Actually a complex?: Many possible reasons. Depends upon what you mean by after treatment...Leukemia infiltration of kidneys? Tumor lysis syndrome? Chemotherapy toxicity? Catabolic state while on steroids, prerenal azotemia secondary to cardiac dysfunction or volume depletion, etc. Can you give further details? If so, we can be much more helpful. ...Read more
What the causes of elevated creatinine with normal urea? And causes of increase urea with normal creatinine?
Homework?: This is more than we can handle in 400 words, you know reference ranges are set so several % of healthies fall outside, that all well-muscled men have "high creatinine" and that labs mean nothing apart from people. This said, (1) healthy bodybuilder, people on Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) or Tagamet, others; (2) dehydration, after big steak dinner. Try to understand the basic biology instead of just lists. ...Read more
My dad sufering from urter ston and kidney pain with high level of ceriatenin and normal urea also the urin is normal?
My grandma said that today she went to the doctor and the doctor said that the urea was high on her. Is that good or bad? What causes that. Thank you?
My CK and urea in blood was higher than normal but my protein levels were in just above lower range. Is it from training and high protein food or?
Here are some...: Blood urea nitrogen reflects extrinsic nitrogen intake and blood concentration. Hence, the common causes for mild elevated BUN are dehydration and high-protein diet under assuming kidney works well. In addition, kidney failure or poor circulation like heart failure may cause BUN to rise. To know more how it may mean, testing blood for creatinine, BUN, BUN to Creatinine ratio has been the standard. ...Read more
The BUN is usually 10 times the creatinine. When the creatinine goes up, the BUN goes up similarly to roughly keep this proportion, in most kidney disease states.
The notable exception is when the creatinine goes up say by 20% to 1.2, but the BUN goes up *5 to 50. This strongly suggests a pre-renal state, commonly dehydration.
Mild elevations of BUN with normal creatinines aren't of concern. ...Read more
My mother has high levels of pth low vitamin d, normal creatinine and elevated levels of urea, what does this mean?
My mother in law is patient of high BP and diabetic. Her creatinine level is 5.5 and blood urea 140. Is it life threatening and how can be reduced?
Hi Doctor, My father is aged 73. His creatanine level is 6.59, blood urea 380, with normal Na and K+ levels. He's having high BP, and is non-diabetic. Recently, edema was treated with some medication.
