Blocked kidney: We look at BUN and Cr when evaluating kidney function. If a kidney stone is blocking the flow of urine (obstructing) and resulting in abnormal kidney labs, the stone should be dealt with by a urologist. Lithotripsy uses sound waves to break up stones. A stent can also open up the blockage and help relieve pressure on the obstructed kidney.
