Urea is the principal waste product of protein catabolism and its concentration in the blood is an important indicator of liver and kidney function. Decreased BUN levels are usually associated with nephritis, acute liver destruction, amyloidosis and pregnancy. Elevated BUN levels are usually associated with chronic nephritis, intestinal and urinary obstruction, uremia, metallic poisoning, pneumonia, Addison’s disease, peritonitis, surgical shock and cardiac failure. BUN testing forms an integral part of monitoring and therapy for patients with any of these conditions.
