Brief Answer:
No worries for now

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

The blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN), creatinine levels and serum potassium levels, from your results are within very acceptable and normal levels. This could indicate that kidney function, especially as concerns filtration is intact (normal).

I would suggest you do drink much water and fluids and see the response. Increase fluid intake simply for now. Your kidney function is ok.

In case this persists, you could consult a nephrologist.

Kind regards.

For now, all is fine and you need not bother. Simply drink more. Increased temperatures could explain reduced frequency/quantity of urine eliminated. Thanks and hope this helps.

Hi and tanks for the query,

For sure the Serum potassium values are low, but not to a level to cause any worries or panic, it s true its 2 units below the normal level, but its no issue. The normal limits are usually derived and are based on averages, No worries.

Hi and thanks for the query,

There is no nothing to worry about with the anion gap and Carbondioxide. In your case, they are ok. Their interpretations are also only valid if there are abnormalities with Sodium, BUN , creatinine which are all normal in your case.

Thanks and hope this helps. Feel very asking any further questions if need be. Thanks and kind regards.
