Blood Urea Nitrogen, or BUN, is referred to as the waste material that is derived from the protein breakdown process, which often gets excreted through the kidneys. In the instances wherein your kidney functionalities are impaired, this waste product may accumulate in your bloodstream, which may lead to hypertension, anaemia, cardiovascular disorders and other lifestyle disorders.

The Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) test is a common kidney function test that measures the amount of nitrogen in your blood that comes from urea. A BUN Blood Test is performed to analyse the functional efficacy of your kidneys by measuring your real-time BUN levels against the normal BUN levels. Most times, individuals with kidney disorders might not exhibit readily identifiable symptoms. Thus, Blood Urea Nitrogen test is crucial in identifying potential risks for kidney-related disorders.
