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.
