How To Know The Renal Function Test Well

2018-11-20 11:33

To know exactly how about your own renal function,you have to do the Renal function test and you should know well about that test as following.

1. Serum creatinine(the important indicator for your kidney condition)

Blood creatinine is the most commonly used indicator for judging renal function. The increase of creatinine often means the coming of kidney failure.

Generally, the creatinine of women is about 60 μ m ol / L, while that of men is about 80 μ m ol / L. Due to the different reagents and instruments used in various hospitals, the normal range of creatinine is also different, but it is between 40 and 130.

Creatinine will be affected by diet, activity and muscle mass, so the elderly, emaciated and vegetarians will have lower creatinine. So when these people’s creatinine is close to the upper limit of the normal range, although it is also in the normal range, the renal function has decreased, which needs attention.

2. Urea nitrogen

Urea nitrogen is not the primary index for observing renal function. It is not sensitive to serum creatinine. It is used to roughly observe the degree of damage to renal function. If you find this increase alone, it may not necessarily be a decrease in renal function, but it needs to be combined with other indicators.

However, it is not that the urea nitrogen value is unimportant. When renal failure is serious and uremia is serious, urea nitrogen represents the severity of the disease, so dialysis patients often use urea nitrogen as an observation index.

In addition, it should be noted that urea nitrogen is more toxic than creatinine. If it exceeds 28.5 mmol / L, it will easily damage nerves and brain. When urea nitrogen is very high, it will lead to mental disorder and dangerous actions. Therefore, when urea nitrogen is very high, measures should be taken in time.

3. Uric acid

Uric acid is a metabolite of purine. This indicator is different between men and women, and the normal range is different. It should be noted that allopurinol, benzbromarone and other uric acid lowering drugs have side effects on the kidney, especially benzbromarone and probenecid, which can not be used for a long time.
