    BUN Level 38: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

    BUN Level 38: Causes, Symptoms and TreatmentBUN, short for blood urea nitrogen, is an important index for patients with CKD to learn about their kidney function, as high BUN level is always associated with severe kidney damage. Well then, a person with BUN level 38, what will happen? And is there any available treatment to deal with the condition?

    Causes of BUN 38

    Blood urea nitrogen is a metabolic product of protein. Like creatinine level, it is mainly kept within the normal range by the healthy kidneys. However, when diagnosed with kidney disease, the injured kidney fails to discharge extra wastes and toxins. For healthy people, their normal BUN range is 9~20mg/dL, so BUN level 38 is much higher than normal range. 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.

    Symptoms of high BUN levels.

    -nausea and vomiting

    -poor appetite

    -high blood pressure


    Treatment for BUN 38

    1. Drink proper amount of water.

    2. Eat a low-protein diet

    3. Avoid much oxalic acid

    4. Repair kidney damage

    Repairing kidney damage is the root cause for lowering high blood urea nitrogen level. To reach the goal, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is recommended to you. The therapy focuses on improving glomerular filtration rate, repairing impaired damaged kidney cells and reversing kidney damage rather than only cleaning polluted blood. Once the kidney cells recover to work, high BUN level also can reduce naturally.

    Besides, Blood Pollution Therapy is also available for removing extra wastes products from the body and it makes full use of numerous technology of blood purification. And our treatment has great success on treating kidney disease patients and relieving related symptoms. More detailed info, please mail us to or leave a message below.
