RE: [IP] Re: What is BUN?



Well the way the kidney doctor look at BUN (Blood Urea Nitrogen) is to see
how hydrated you are in your body.  To check the function of your kidney(s)
ask for a creatinine (a blood test).  How much do you drink, because my BUN
is always high and I'm a kidney transplant patient and I drink about 4 1/2
liters a day.

I was told it is Blood, Urea, Nitrogen and is very important in determining
kidney disease. Ask you doctor if you need to make any adjustments. (~_^)
