Adjunct only: If you truly have renal disease, evidenced by a seriously and consistently elevated BUN and creatinine, then your focus needs to be on scientific, modern, evidence-based treatment that will keep you off dialysis / transplant service. You're welcome to use the ancient plant-based medicines as adjuncts but keep your nephrologist informed. Read more

What medicine should be taken for high blood urea?

What medicine should be taken for high blood urea?

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. Read more

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. Read more

What is the most likely reason for having an abnormally high blood urea level?

What is the most likely reason for having an abnormally high blood urea level?

Co-tango usually: The BUN is usually 10 times the creatinine. When the creatinine goes up, the BUN goes up similarly to roughly keep this proportion, in most kidney disease states. The notable exception is when the creatinine goes up say by 20% to 1.2, but the BUN goes up *5 to 50. This strongly suggests a pre-renal state, commonly dehydration. Mild elevations of BUN with normal creatinines aren't of concern. Read more

High blood urea & pain in the finer bones, what to do?

High BUN and pain: You should ask your question to the physician (p) who ordered the blood work on you allowing you to discover the fact you had a high bun. Your p knows your case best of all, including the level of your bun, and is in a better position to give you a meaningful answer to your question. Read more

Is it possible to have high creatinine, high blood urea nitrogen and high potassium levels simultaneously?

Is it possible to have high creatinine, high blood urea nitrogen and high potassium levels simultaneously?

Absolutely yes: This is exactly what is seen with kidney (renal) failure. I am not making a diagnosis on this information alone. I can only advise strongly that anyone with elevation in bun, cr and potassium, as listed above, should see his/her physician immediately. Read more

Dehydration?: Your creatinine is normal, the slight elevation in BUN may be due to dehydration associated with fasting. Ask you doctor for an estimated glomerular filtration rate, and discuss repeating the test after adequate hydration. Read more

Blood urea high 0.58 & creatrine 0.98?

A Cr of 0.98 is fine: I am not familiar with the BUN scale you are reporting. A BUN elevation out of proportion to cr can be associated with dehydration. Read more

My blood urea is normal 22mg/dl, but my creatinine is high 4 mg/dl (what happen? Please.)

Are you sure?: Are you sure creatinine is 4? Or maybe. 4? If it is 4 then this is a medical emergency and you need to be seen by a Nephrologist (kidney doctor specialist) as soon as possible or ED if new. If this is the case there is nothing else we can recommend over this media to make that better since multiple things might be happening. You might even need emergency dialysis. If it is 0.4 then it is normal. Read more

What's BUN?: BUN stands for blood urea nitrogen. Urea nitrogen is what forms when protein breaks down and it not used by itself to identify patients with kidney disease. BUN is elevated in cases of dehydration as well as kidney disease. Serum creatinine (C) is a better determinant of kidney function. If the BUN C ratio is > 20, the patient may be dehydrated. The normal range of B is 7-20 mg/dl. Read more
