Abnormal blood urea nitrogen (BUN) levels can indicate an issue with the liver or kidneys.
This test is a common component of a routine health screening, and is also used to evaluate kidney and liver function.
Urea is produced by the liver as it breaks down proteins. From there, it is filtered by the kidneys and exits the body through urine. In conjunction with a creatinine test, a BUN test can be used to evaluate kidney disease. This test is also included in the Basic Metabolic Panel, Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, and Renal Function Panel. There are no fasting requirements for this test.
