Background: Endogenous creatinine and urea are protein metabolites and their levels in the blood give information about renal function. Normal serum creatinine and urea levels in Sudan are not known and their references values are mainly Caucasian. Some normal Sudanese values were found different from international.
Objective: To document the normal serum creatinine and urea in Sudanese and to correlate them with; age, gender and body mass index.
Methods: The study population consisted of 444volunteer (93 males - 351females) of ages ranged between 20-60 year. Blood samples were collected from all of them after their consents and samples of serum that have been separated, used for creatinine and urea measurement by full automated mindray B 300 device.
Results: The results showed that the (mean±SD) of serum creatinine and urea levels were (0.49-1.15mg/dl) and (11.28-36.14mg/dl) respectively for all study group. Both serum urea and creatinine levels were different for the different ages, body mass index and gender.
Conclusion: The result reached disclosed that the mean levels of both urea and creatinine were within the international ranges but the maximum level is lower than the international one.
