One of the most key components in checking the functioning of the kidney is the blood urea nitrogen test. One of the waste products that the kidney removes is urea nitrogen. The test measures the level of blood urea nitrogen in the body. If there are any abnormalities seen in the level of blood urea nitrogen, that could indicate the kidneys not working properly. If the kidneys don’t function, the body will not be able to excrete waste products.

About Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) Test

Why is the Blood Urea Nitrogen test done?

BUN tests could be part of a routine check-up that everyone should do periodically to check for any abnormalities in the body and bring a change in their lifestyles.

There are certain factors that could put a person at risk of developing kidney problems. Those factors include:

  • Family history (genetic) of
  • kidney problems
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart diseases

The practitioner could order a blood Urea Nitrogen test if there are any signs or symptoms of later-stage kidney diseases. Those include:

  • Frequent urination
  • Constant itching
  • Fatigue or tiredness
  • Swelling in various parts of the body
  • Muscle cramps
  • Trouble in sleeping
What does the Blood Urea Nitrogen test measure?

The kidneys are very important for the body to be able to get rid of waste products and function properly. The kidneys’ main function is to remove wasteful products and extra fluid from the body. If a person is suffering from kidney disease, the waste products could be building up in the blood, leading to major health diseases for the individual.

The BUN test is very useful in understanding whether the kidneys are able to function as they should. Since urea nitrogen is one of the products that is excreted by the body, measuring its levels could be a useful indicator of the kidney’s functioning. Treatment at an early stage of kidney disease is much easier than in the later stages. Since early-stage patients do not show any symptoms of kidney disease, the BUN is used to detect any problems. A doctor should be consulted after the test results are received.

Risk/Side-effects of BUN test

Generally, there is very less risk of any major symptoms inside the body. The person might feel slight pain (or some bruising) in the area where the needle has been pierced to take the blood. But those tend to disappear pretty quickly and not cause any major problems to the patient. In very rare cases, the patient might develop blood collection under the skin or infection at the site where the needle was pierced. But that is a very rare occurrence and nothing major to worry about.

Interpreting the Blood Urea Nitrogen Test Results

The results of the BUN test are measured in milligrams per decilitre (mg/dL) or millimoles per litre (mmol/L). The normal range varies depending on the laboratory, but there are minor changes. Generally, the urea nitrogen levels tend to increase with age. Therefore, higher BUN levels could indicate that your kidneys are not working properly, and treatment should be started immediately.

Higher levels of urea nitrogen could be due to the following reasons:

  • Dehydration (due to not drinking enough fluids)
  • Obstruction in the urinary tract
  • A recent heart attack or congestive heart failure
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding
  • Shock (due to some recent trauma)
  • Severe burns around the body
  • Certain medications like antibiotics
  • A diet high in protein

Any of these factors could result in the urea nitrogen levels increasing in the blood. A doctor should be contacted immediately, and treatment should be started to treat this abnormality and restore the kidney’s functioning.
