Question: Big BUN concern
|Cinnabon - Sat Nov 26, 2005 11:01 pm||
I am a T1 diabetic with a 5.2 A1C. I recently got my lab results and I am very concerned about my BUN. My Creatinine is 0.8 but my BUN is 37 and my BUN/ Creatinne ratio 46. I am very concerned and asked my Endo yet he syays that it is due to fasting and that w/ a 0.8 of creatinine I shouldnt be worried. I would appreciate any suggestions or information.

Your doctor is rightly saying that you shouldnt be concerned regarding BUN levels.
The creatinine is a more accurate indicator of kidney function.
