Evaluation of renal disease progression: Markers

To begin with, she emphasizes the importance of lean body weight in C-G Method. Therefore, please check your local reference for lean body weight.

Secondly, the normal level of BUN is around 10 to 15 mg/dL. When a patient’s level is above 18, we should notice if there is any risk factor. After removing those factors, you may find the BUN level back to normal.
