Does Increased BUN Level Indicate Your Nephrotic Syndrome Is Worsening

Does Increased BUN Level Indicate Your Nephrotic Syndrome Is WorseningUrea is a metabolic byproduct which can build up if kidney function is impaired. Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) is also an indicator of kidney function like creatinine. With Nephrotic Syndrome, it is likely for you to have high BUN. Does increased BUN level indicate your Nephrotic Syndrome is worsening?

Nephrotic Syndrome and High BUN level

With timely and effective treatment, Nephrotic Syndrome does not impair your kidney function. But for some patients, they kidney function gradually declines even if they take treatment aggressively. BUN levels do not increase until more than 50% of your kidney function has been lost. Therefore, once your BUN levels increase, importance should be attached.

How to lower BUN level for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?

-Reduce the intake of protein

Protein consumption restriction does not only help you control BUN levels, but also helps reduce protein leakage as well as protect kidney function. But it does not mean you should avoid protein intake. Moderate protein intake is necessary for body function. High quality protein such as egg white, lean meat and fish is good choice, because they contain more essential amino acids, which can be absorbed by body.

-Improve kidney function

The above way can only help you reduce the production of urea. If you want to lower BUN levels, you should increase BUN output. That is to say, you should repair the damaged kidneys and promote kidney function. 4M treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various Medicinal Soup) can help you cleanse the blood. It can also decompose the immune complexes in the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. Besides, it can lower blood pressure, remove stasis, regulate blood sugar level and so on to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. With the improvement of kidney function, BUN level will decline.

Does increased BUN level indicate that your Nephrotic Syndrome is worsening? Yes, so you should take treatment as early as possible. For more information about Nephrotic Syndrome, please feel free to contact online doctor or leave a message below.
