Your doctor will perform different tests based on which stage of kidney disease you are in. Creatinine and BUN tests can tell how about your kidney function. Then what creatinine and BUN numbers show kidney failure?
Compared with creatinine level, BUN is an early sign of reduced kidney function, but less accurate. Many factors may result in elevated creatinine and BUN numbers, but we will only talk about those numbers caused by kidney damage here. So you should make sure you have already been diagnosed with kidney diseases.
The normal range of creatinine level for men is 0.6-1.2mg/dl; for women is 0.5-1.1mg/dl. The normal range of BUN numbers for adults is 9-20mg/dl. (you should know that different regions have different standards)
In China, we usually say the creatinine and BUN numbers have the following relations with renal insufficiency: Kidney failure compensatory period: GFR levels decline to 50ml/min, BUN<9mmol/L, 177μmoL/L≥SCr≥133μmoL/L; Kidney failure decompensation period: BUN>9mmol/L, 442μmoL/L≥SCr≥186μmoL/L; kidney failure stage: BUN>20mmol/L, 707μmoL/L≥SCr≥443μmoL/L.
From the numbers mentioned above, we can know that when BUN levels exceed 20mmol/L or creatinine level is more than 443μmoL/L, then condition develops kidney failure, also known as stage 4 chronic kidney disease, which requiring dialysis or kidney transplant in the near future.
Kidney failure patients care about the natural and effective treatment to lower creatinine and BUN numbers very much. Though in the clinic, your doctors will prescribe western medications and give diet suggestions to deal with this problem, it is not enough.
