Sir, my son aged 22 years is suffering from kidney problem since December 2012. His Serum creatinine was suddently checked on 28th of November 2012 and was found to be 20+. He was got admitted in Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, new Delhi where he was admitted for 6 days. Since then he is taking regular dialysis in a gap of 4-5 days but his serum creatine raises very fast some time it reaches to 18, 20, 22 +++ but his blood urea remains less than 200 most of the time.

It seems that your son is having Chronic Kidney Disease .
You need to consult your doctor to find out if the kidneys are irreversibly damaged.
If so then your son requires lifelong dialysis or a renal transplant.
His serum creatinine is going to increase till your next dialysis session.
From the reports it looks like he requires dialysis more frequently.
kidney failure patients develop low urine output over period of time as kidney function deteriorates.
Consult your Doc for proper medications
Take care
