BUN is an indicator of kidney function. In the early stage of kidney function impairment, BUN keeps in the normal range. When GFR is lower than 50 %, BUN level increases quickly. How to control the BUN? That is really a question. Should I cut back on meat protein if my BUN is high? In the following, you may find the answer.
Urea nitrogen is the end product of protein metabolism, so cutting back on meat protein is helpful in controlling BUN. But protein is necessary for body building. In order to satisfy the need of body, you should supplement moderate high quality protein, such as lean meat, fish and egg white. To reduce the protein metabolism, you should ensure calory intake. There are three sources to supply calory for your body, namely protein, carbohydrate and fat. Increasing the intake of carbohydrate can reduce protein metabolism. It is better for you to provide 30 Kca/Kg calory per day. Fresh vegetables and fruits are high in vitamins, which can help you boost immune system and fight against kidney disease, so you had better add them into your diet.
Though diet can help you control BUN to certain extent, it can not solve the problem from the root. Only when your kidney function improves, BUN level comes down. Chinese medicine therapies such as Medicated Bath, Circle Therapy and Enema Therapy can help your body to discharge toxins and improve blood circulation. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can inhibit kidney inflammation, block blood clotting, dilate blood vessels, degrade extracellular matrix and provide various nutrients. These function can help kidney self-healing.
