I have neprhocalcinosis, today I had a renal function test done and my BUN was 7 & chloride 112, other levels normal. What could this mean?

I have neprhocalcinosis, today I had a renal function test done and my BUN was 7 & chloride 112, other levels normal. What could this mean?

Assuming you have no issue low BUN is more diet. Your chloride is high normal and should hair be repeated. These labs have to be looked in totality and don't mean disease. Best of luck ...Read more
