My mother’s biochemistry reports says that she is having blood urea around 42.0 mg/dl and serum creatinine around 0.6 mg/dl. So I just want to know about it. What does it mean?

I cannot determine a diagnosis based on the information that you provide.  You can use this information to calculate her estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR).  You can enter the information on her blood testing into an equation that will calculate her eGFR.  This will give you an estimate of your mother’s kidney function.  You can access the equation at:  https://www.kidney.org/professionals/KDOQI/gfr_calculator
