BUN Level in Reference to Kidney DiseaseBUN, which stands for Blood Urea Nitrogen, is a blood test reflecting how well your kidneys are working. Nitrogen in your blood comes from the wastes product urea, which is made in the liver when protein is broken down. It is discharged by the kidneys at a stable rate.

BUN level in reference to kidney disease

High BUN level can be caused by large protein intake, dehydration, UGIB (upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage), congestive heart failure or liver problems, etc. Kidney damage is also one the common causes of BUN elevation.

The normal BUN level for healthy individuals is 7-20 mg/dL in adults, and 5-18 mg/dL in children. The BUN level won’t elevate until the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) reduces to less than 50ml/min.

As BUN rises, symptoms of kidney disease may appear, such as a bad taste in the mouth, poor appetite, nausea, and vomiting.

How to reverse high BUN levels?

Step one: Taking a test to get an accurate diagnosis. Your doctor can give you right treatment based on your test result. If it is indeed related kidney disease, you may be prescribed some diuretic to increase urine output so as to help the kidneys discharge the excessive urea.

However, long term use with large dosage diuretics can bring some side effects, causing further kidney damage. Therefore, I recommend you take Chinese herbal tea. Dandelion, nettle, poria cocos, corn silks, rhizome of lalang, etc are most commonly used for that purpose. You can consult our doctors online about how much you should take.

Step two: Drinking plenty of water if you have no swelling. This is also to increase urine output. In addition, keeping enough fluids intake can prevent you from dehydrating. Consult your physician for exact amounts based on your health status.

Step three: Keep a low-protein diet. Since your damaged kidneys have failed to filter protein properly, high-protein intake will burden your kidneys. Stay away yourself from foods like red meat, poultry, fish and dairy products, and bean products. You can take some fresh vegetables and fruits. 0.6-0.8 gram per kilogram of body weight is recommended.
