    2014-05-02 07:50| Font Size A A A

    High Urea Nitrogen Level in Blood in Nephrotic PatientsKidney is an important organ for our body health, which is in charge of our body’s internal metabolic balances. As a result, when patient’s kidney function is damaged severely by kidney disease, that will cause many abnormal signs. In fact, high urea nitrogen in blood is an important standard to assess patient’s kidney function, and usually it is a dangerous sign.

    What is high urea nitrogen?

    Urea nitrogen is a metabolic product of protein, and it should be filtrated out by kidney. In fact, protein can be gotten from our diet and liver synthesis, which will produce urea continuously in this process. On the other hand, urea nitrogen will be filtrated out by kidney at the same time. For healthy people, the level of urea nitrogen in blood can changes in a stable range.

    While when patient’s kidney function is reduced by chronic kidney disease, urea nitrogen will accumulate in patient’s body, which will cause patients to have high urea nitrogen level.

    Why high urea level is a dangerous sign?

    High urea nitrogen can be caused by many factors, but most of its causes are not very severe, unless it is caused by kidney damage.

    Kidney has strong metabolic ability, which lead to half normal kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health. Thereby, even if patients have kidney disease, that will not cause patients to have high BUN unless more than half normal kidney function has been damaged, which means patient’s kidney damage is already very severe. Kidney is so important for our body health, so it is already very dangerous at this point. Besides, high urea level in blood is a bad condition, because it can cause many health problems, like itching, nausea and vomiting, etc.
