Interpretation of the lab result (except urinalysis) (adiba)

Renal Profile • BUSE (Blood Urea Serum • Urea and electrolytes are carried out routinely
Electrolyte) (Normal) on serum or plasma samples.
• Serum creatinine (Normal) • It was normal and indicates that this patient does
not have electrolyte imbalance and renal failure.
• Serum creatinine measurements are used to
calculate the estimated glomerular filtration rate
(eGFR), which is used as a screening test to look
for evidence of kidney damage.

Serum uric • 600 μmol/L (High) • Male: 2.1 to 8.5 mg/dL (likely higher with age)
acid level • Female: 2.0 to 7.0 mg/dL (likely higher with age)
• Uric acid formation may occur when the blood
uric acid level rises above 7 mg/dL.
• Increased concentrations of uric acid can cause
crystals or kidney stones that can damage the
kidneys.
• Uric acid stones compose <5% of all urinary
calculi and are usually found in men.
• Most patients with uric acid calculi, however, do
not have hyperuricemia.

• Note the course of the ureters lateral to the
lumbar spine overlying the psoas muscles
proximally, crossing over the sacrum, and
curving laterally in the pelvis before turning
medially to insert in the urinary bladder. Due to
peristalsis, the ureter may not be visible in its
entirety.
