[IP] Re: What is BUN?

An honest question.

As a lab test, it doesn't refer to food.

See the following for a more descriptive, serious answer. 

As a test for kidney problems, it is usually evaluated along with the serum 
creatinine, the creatinine clearance test, and the 24 hour urine for protein. 

The microalbumin test is a screening test to see if you need more detailed 
kidney function tests.

Ask your healthcare provider if you are getting all the standard recommended 
lab tests as recommended by the ADA.
