Chronic kidney failure is a disease caused by chronic deteriorating of renal function. It is marked by the increase of blood creatinine and ureum. Its primary symptoms are nausea, vomiting, anorexia and other disturbances causing inadequate protein intake. Chronic kidney failure patients will have abnormal concentration of plasma amino acid. Ureum is a best predictor to diagnose a kidney failure when a toxic uraemic is detected. Creatinine is an endogenous metabolism that is used to assess glomerulus function. It is generally derived from muscle metabolism. This research aims were to understand and analyze the correlation between protein intake and contents of blood creatinine and ureum of chronic kidney failure patients. Protein intakes of respondents were in poor category (100%), high content of blood ureum (90.9%), and high content of creatinine (93.9%). Average protein intake was 20.11%. Average content of blood ureum was 95.3 mg/dl, and average content of blood creatinine was 3.3 mg/dl. Correlation test indicated that there was not any correlation between protein intake and contents of blood creatinine and ureum.
