What Does it Mean When Your Blood Urea Nitrogen Level is HighWhat does it mean when your blood urea nitrogen (BUN) level is high? This is a question we received from our website, and this would be a common question which is confused many kidney disease patients when they have high BUN level. In this article, we will have further understanding of the BUN and kidney disease, and we hope this will be helpful for all the kidney disease patients.

What does the high BUN level in kidney disease mean?

Urea nitrogen is a kind of wastes in blood, which is the metabolism of protein in body. In general, the kidneys have the function of removing the toxins and wastes in blood, which can help purify the blood. However, when the kidneys are damaged, it will fail to work well, then people will have some severe symptoms.

Since urea nitrogen is a kind of waste in blood, so it mainly excretes by kidneys. When the kidneys are damaged severely, patients only have 1/2 or 1/3 kidney function, the urea nitrogen level in blood will be increased. This is why kidney disease patients often have high blood urea nitrogen (BUN).

How to lower the high BUN level in kidney disease patients?

From above, we can know that urea nitrogen is the metabolism of protein in blood, and the high BUN level is mainly caused by the kidney damage, so kidney disease patients need to limit the protein intake and repair the kidney damage.

Since protein is a necessary nutrition for people, but for kidney disease patients, they need to limit the protein intake, which can reduce the BUN level and reduce the kidney burden. For kidney disease patients, they need to take proper amount of high quality protein, which can help protect the residual kidney function.
