Find cause: Treat the patient, not the number. High BUN can be due to something as simple as eating a steak dinner & then running a marathon & getting dehydrated. This is good for you & need not be treated. Or it can be the sign of kidney disease, which should be treated; there are a lot of them & you need to find which one.

What can I do for high blood urea?

High BUN: You need to have more than a blood urea nitrogen (BUN) value to determine you have chronic kidney disease. You also need a creatinine (c) level, at the very least. Your BUN level is a reflection of your protein intake and your state of dehydration. If you ratio of BUN to c is > 20:1, you may have been dehydrated. Ask your doctor for more information.
