    What Stage Is It with BUN 38

    2014-06-02 02:43| Font Size A A A

    What Stage Is It with BUN 38BUN is an important standard for patients with CKD to learn about their kidney function, and as patient’s kidney function is damaged by his disease, patient’s BUN level will be reduced gradually in this process. As we know, CKD is divided into five stages, so if CKD patients have BUN 38, what stage is he in?

    What is BUN?

    BUN refers to blood urea nitrogen, which is a metabolic product of protein. For patients with kidney disease, when their kidney function is damaged severely, their BUN level will increase.

    However, it is not easy for patients to have high BUN unless more than half normal kidney function is damaged. That is because kidney has strong metabolic ability, and half normal kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health. Thereby, if patients begin to have high BUN due to kidney damage, that means at least half normal kidney function has been damaged at this point.

    What stage is it with BUN 38?

    For healthy people, their normal BUN range is 9~20mg/dL, so BUN level 38 is much higher than normal range.

    If CKD patients begin to have high BUN, that means at least half normal kidney function has been damaged, and patients are at least in CKD stage 3. However, it is not sure which stage patient is in when he has BUN 38, but if patient’s BUN reaches about 60mg/dL, that is a standard of uremia, which means patients is going to be in the end stage of CKD. Thereby, patients with BUN 38 is very likely to be in the later stage of CKD stage 3, and patients may also be in CKD stage 4.

    Kidney disease is very dangerous, and patients should do what they can to improve their condition. If you need any help, you can leave us a message about your details and problem. We will provide the guidance you need or do what we can to help you.
