Dear Sir,
A blood urea level of more than 100 is an indicator of advanced kidney failure. Kindly consult a nephrologist ASAP for proper management. Please take care.

Hello.

I understand your feeling.

I would like to tell you that increase in blood urea levels does not lead to kidney but inturn kidney failure may lead to increase on blood urea levels. And kidney failure may occur because if raised BP, diabetes, stroke to renal blood vessels etc.
Thank you
