A Study on Renal Parameters among Patients with CKD
Renal Parameters among Patients with CKD
Background: Chronic renal failure usually occurs over many years as the internal structures of the kidney are slowly damaged. In the early stages, there may be no symptoms. Progression may be so gradual that symptoms do not occur until kidney function is less than one-tenth of the normal. Uremia also causes hypothermia, which is believed to be due, in part to inhibition of the Na+ pump by some retained toxins. Dialysis usually returns body temperature to normal. It is often accompanied by impairment of carbohydrates, fats and proteins and defective utilization of energy. Subjects and Methods: A group of 72 individuals with marginally raised serum creatinine irrespective of their gender between 20 to 65 yrs were included in the study. Renal dysfunction was suspected in all of them. It’s a prospective cross-sectional study conducted at the department of biochemistry. Results: Blood Urea levels were 12-102 mg/dl with mean 33.2+/- 18.12 SD. the Total Proteins among the subjects varied in range of 4.5- 8gm/dl levels with mean of 6.58+/- 0.69 SD. The Serum Albumin levels were 1.7 – 5gm/dl with mean of 3.70+/- 0.71 SD, the blood glucose levels range among the subjects were between 59 – 256 mg/dl where mean was about 108.59 +/- 33.5 SD. Conclusion: The various parametric distribution among the subject where the creatine levels ranged from 0.6-1.6 mg/dl with mean of 1.03+/- 0.23 SD. Blood Urea levels were 12-102 mg/dl with mean 33.2+/- 18.12 SD.
