Thanks for your query.
The first two findings may suggest a kidney problem. I would recommend a urine r/m, Serum creatinine and urea to determine the health of your kidneys.
The third finding is often seen in the elderly. Consult your doctor to see if your mother needs to be started on aspirin.
Hope this helps
Good luck
