Does Diabetes Cause A High Level of BUN

Not a few diabetics find that they have elevated BUN level. Does diabetes cause a high level of BUN? Read on to learn more information.

BUN level mainly reflects glomerular filtration function (GFR). If your BUN increases, it may indicate that your kidneys are damaged. With diabetes over 10 years, it is likely for you to suffer from kidney damage. Therefore, you had better do tests such as blood test, urine test and fundus examination further to check whether it is Diabetic Nephropathy or not.

If your high BUN is caused by Diabetic Nephropathy, you can try the following ways to lower it.

-To reduce blood glucose level. It is the main cause of kidney damage. To do exercises regularly, to eat healthy foods and to lose extra pounds are helpful for you.

-To reduce protein intake. Urea is the waste product of protein metabolism. To restrict protein intake can not only help reduce BUN, but also protect your kidneys from being damaged further.

-To repair kidney damage and promote renal function. Here we recommend you a systemic Chinese medicine treatment, which has been practiced in Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine for years. It is Toxin-Removing Treatment. This treatment takes advantage of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, Mai Kang Mixture and so on to eliminate waste products including urea out of body. It can also improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys so that enough essential elements can be transported into damaged kidneys to speed up kidney recovery. Besides, it can regulate blood sugar level, lower high blood pressure and reduce blood cholesterol level. In such good environment, the damaged kidneys will gradually repair themselves. After about half month’s treatment, your BUN level will decline. After about one month’s treatment, your kidney condition will get well. With the improvement of renal function, urea can be passed out of body naturally, and then you BUN level will be kept stable at certain range.

Does diabetes cause a high level of BUN? Yes, it does. When you have a high BUN level, you had better do tests to make a clear diagnosis and then take immediate treatment to control your disease.
