What Does It Indicate If I Have Raised BUN Level 36 With FSGS

What Does It Indicate If I Have Raised BUN Level 36 With FSGSFocal Segmental Glomerulus Sclerosis (FSGS) is a kidney disease which can cause damage in glomeruli, and that can damage patient’s kidney function directly.

With kidney damage, FSGS patients can have many abnormal signs and symptoms in their body. And if a FSGS patient have BUN level 36, what does that indicate?

What is BUN?

BUN refers to Blood Urea Nitrogen, which is a major end metabolic product of protein, and it should be filtrated out by kidney.

We will get BUN continuously from the foods we take and our muscle’s decomposition, and BUN in our blood will be filtrated out continuously by our kidney. As a result, BUN level in our body is kept in a stable range, and its value can reflect our kidney function.

What does BUN level 36 mean for patients with FSGS?

For patients with FSGS, their disease can cause damage in glomeruli, which can lower patient’s glomerular filtration rate (GFR) directly, and that will cause substances that should be filtrated out through urination accumulating in patient’s body. BUN will also accumulate in patient’s body in this process.

The normal BUN level of healthy people is 9~20mg/dL, so 36 BUN level is much higher than normal. In fact, kidney has strong metabolic ability and strong compensation, and half normal kidney function will be able to guarantee our body heath, so it is not easy for patient to have high BUN unless more than half kidney function is damaged.

Besides, when patient’s BUN level reaches 60mg/dL, it is a standard that indicates patient will need dialysis to prolong his lifetime. So, BUN level 36mg/dL means patient’s kidney function is damaged moderately, and patient is very likely to be in stage 3 FSGS.

Thereby, for patients with high BUN, they should do what they can to improve their condition and protect their kidney function. Besides, if you need any help in dealing with kidney disease, you can leave us a message about your condition and problem. We will do what we can to help you.
