    What CKD Stage Is Patient in If BUN Level is 58

    2014-05-20 09:17| Font Size A A A

    What CKD Stage Is Patient in If BUN Level is 58For patients with chronic kidney disease, high BUN is an important aspect to learn about their condition. In fact, CKD is divided into five stages, and if patient has BUN level 58, what stage is patient in?

    What is the normal BUN range?

    BUN refers to blood urea nitrogen, which is a metabolic product of protein. We will get protein from our diet continuously, which will produce BUN in our body. On the other hand, BUN will be filtrated out by kidney persistently. Thereby, the BUN level of our body can change in a stable range.

    For healthy people, their BUN range is about 9~20mg/dL. Thereby, if patients’ BUN level is 58mg/dL, that is much higher than normal. Because kidney is in charge of removing out BUN from our body, the higher BUN will be caused when patient’s kidney damage is severer.

    What stage is patient in with BUN level 58?

    In fact, there is not an exact corresponding relation between BUN level and CKD stages, because BUN level can be affected by many factors. For example, when patients take much protein in their diet, that will cause the increase of BUN level. If patients have problems like fever, acute infection, burn, hydration, etc, that will also cause patients to have high BUN.

    Even though BUN level can not indicate which stage of CKD patient is in, but it is also a reflection of patient’s kidney function. For patients patients, when their BUN reaches 60ml/min, it indicates they may be in the end stage of CKD. Thereby, if patients have 58mg/dL BUN, and if it is caused by low kidney function, patients are going to be in CKD stage 5, which is the end stage of CKD.

    Kidney disease can cause many complicated health problems, and patients should do their best to improve their condition. If you need any help, you can contact our online experts. We will do what we can to help you.
