A Healthy High Blood Urea Nitrogen Level Diet Chart

A Healthy High Blood Urea Nitrogen Level Diet ChartIn lab test, blood urea nitrogen (BUN) is used to reflect urea level in the blood. If it is higher than the normal, it may be caused by dehydration, excessive intake of protein, kidney disease, and so on. In this condition, patients should follow a healthy high BUN diet chart.

The production of blood urea nitrogen

Blood urea nitrogen is the nitrogen content of urea, which is one terminal product of protein metabolism. The intake amount of protein can affect the BUN level momentarily, but normally, kidneys can remove excessive urea from the body so as to maintain the balance of urea production and excretion. This is why the normal BUN level ranges from 9 to 20 mg/dl.

According to this process, we give out some suggestions for a high BUN diet chart.

Step 1: Follow a low-protein diet

Since urea is generated from protein, limited protein intake can reduce the formation of urea that can help reduce high BUN level to some extent and reduce the burden on kidneys. However, the limitation should be moderate. If not, a low-protein diet may induce malnutrition, hair loss, fatigue and other problems. Therefore, it is necessary to determine how much protein you can eat one day.

Step 2: Eat a low-sodium diet

In some cases, BUN level increases because of excess stress or acute hypertension. A low-sodium diet can help manage high blood pressure and slow down the progress of kidney damage. A well control of blood pressure is good to manage BUN level.

Step 3: Drink enough fluid

If high BUN level is caused by dehydration, patients need to drink plenty of fluids or water to make the body stay hydrated. However, if high BUN level is attributed to kidney damage and patients can’t produce enough urine every day, patients are recommended to drink correct amount of fluid.

Step 4: Follow a low-fat and low-cholesterol diet

Because the risk of diabetes and heart disease increases with kidney damage, patients whose high BUN level is due to kidney damage should develop such a diet plan. Besides, they also need to control their carbohydrate intake.
