A BUN Random, or more commonly known as Blood Urea Nitrogen test is done to diagnose kidney problems. [1]

What is BUN Random?

The doctor may ask for a BUN Random test as a part of a routine health screening. The test determines whether the kidneys are working fine. [2]

Urea nitrogen is the waste product particularly formed in the liver after the protein is perfectly metabolized into amino acids. While the liver continues the process, blood urea nitrogen is produced and released in the blood. A healthy pair of kidneys usually remove the BUN, leaving a small amount in the blood. A BUN Random test is done to measure the amount of urea nitrogen in the blood. [1] [2]

The BUN Random test can also be done to analyze the effectiveness of kidney dialysis and other related treatments. [1]
