What is Uremia?

Description of the disease:

Uremia is a condition caused by the accumulation of too high a level of urea in the blood. This occurs when the kidneys are unable to effectively filter waste from the blood.


  • Acute uremia
  • Chronic uremia


  • Edema
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and vomiting


The causes of uremia can be varied, including chronic kidney disease, diabetes, hypertension, and others.


Diagnosis of uremia involves analysis of urea and creatinine levels in the blood, as well as ultrasound examination of the kidneys.


Treatment of uremia may include diet, medications to lower urea levels, dialysis, and kidney transplantation.


Prevention of uremia includes controlling blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and regular medical check-ups.


A urologist, nephrologist, or internist may be involved in the diagnosis and treatment of uremia.
