Hello doctor,

My mother is facing these problem for 15 years. Initially the creatinine level was 2.1 mg/dL, but it increased slowly. She seemed to be in good condition and there are no particular symptoms of high creatinine and urea. Still, her report is not good. The creatine level is 9.11 mg/dL, and the urea level is 180 mg/dL.

Please help.

Thank you.



Welcome to

I have gone through your query and understand your concerns.

The presence of high creatinine and urea for a longer time, without symptoms, is a sign of chronic kidney disease. This may occur due to various reasons like diabetes, obesity, hypertension, or other specific glomerular diseases. Please give the following details to understand the condition:

  1. Ultrasound kidneys status.
  2. Urine routine report, urine albumin creatinine ratio.
  3. Diabetes and blood pressure status.
  4. Swelling in the Legs?
  5. History of recurrent urine infections?

Kindly answer the above questions, so that I can guide you further.

Thank you.
