Q:My father age 67 years. Blood urea nitrogen level suddenly jumped from 90 to 165 in 15 days. Creatinine level is 5. I just want to know immediate treatment to reduce blood urea nitrogen level to reduce risk of heart/kidney failure.
Your father’s blood urea nitrogen and creatinine is much higher than the normal level. The accumulation of too much wastes and toxins is likely to cause poor appetite, fatigue, nausea and vomiting and other symptoms.
If the BUN level exceeds 54mmol/L, urgent dialysis treatment will be recommended, which can help prevent more severe complications happening. Now your father’s blood urea nitrogen level is 165mg/dl (58.85mmol/L), then urgent dialysis treatment should be started. And dialysis treatment is really the immediate treatment to reduce blood urea nitrogen.
But dialysis is not a long-term method. It is unable to treat any kinds of kidney diseases, patients will suffer from the gradually decreased urine output with the dialysis treatment, which indicates the gradual loss of renal function. Your father’s condition is caused by one or several primary diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, lupus and so on. In addition to the treatment to the primary disease, the most important thing is to recover kidney function, in that case, kidneys can work normally again to filter wastes and toxins out of body, then blood urea nitrogen and creatinine level will naturally go back to the normal level. If you are interested in natural ways to recover renal function, you are welcomed to leave a message below.
