    What Does High BUN Numbers MeanFor patients with kidney disease, it is often a dangerous sign when patients find they have high BUN number. As a result, patients with kidney disease may want to have a better understanding about this aspect, which can help them learn more about their condition.

    What is BUN?

    BUN refers to blood urea nitrogen, which is a major end product of protein. BUN is a metabolic waste, and it should be filtrated out by kidney.

    AS we know, we can get protein from the foods we take, and our body will also produce protein everyday, so BUN will be produced in our body continuously. On the other hand, BUN will also be filtrated out by kidney continuously, so BUN in our body can change in a stable range. For patients with kidney disease, BUN is an important standard to learn about their condition, because its level in body can reflect patient’s kidney function.

    What does high BUN numbers mean?

    As we have said, BUN in our body changes in a stable range, and when its level is higher than this range, it will be thought to be high BUN level.

    High BUN can be caused by many factors, and most of its causes are not very dangerous. But when it is caused by kidney damage, it will be a dangerous sign, because that means patient’s kidney damage is already very severe.

    Our kidney has strong metabolic ability, and half normal kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health. As a result, when patients have high BUN, that means at least half normal kidney function is damaged at this point, which is already very severe at this point. Besides, BUN is a metabolic waste, and it can cause many health problems in patient’s body, such as gastrointestinal problem, itching, etc.

    Thereby, patients should deal with their condition positively, because kidney disease can cause many health problems.
