Urea is a waste product formed in the liver and excreted by the kidneys. Elevated levels may indicate potential issues with kidney function.
Creatinine is a waste product produced by muscles. The kidneys filter creatinine from the blood, and elevated levels may suggest impaired kidney function.
e-GFR is a measure of how well your kidneys are filtering waste from the blood. It is calculated using creatinine levels, age, gender, and other factors.
It’s typically a fasting blood test, so avoid food and drinks (except water) for 8-12 hours before the test. Consult with your healthcare provider for specific instructions.
Elevated creatinine levels may suggest impaired kidney function or other underlying health issues. Further investigation and consultation with a healthcare professional are recommended.
Abnormal results may indicate kidney dysfunction. Your healthcare provider will interpret the results in the context of your overall health and may recommend further tests or treatment.
