Hi, the increased levels of blood urea nitrogen and uric acid may be due to some damage caused to the renal tubules as a result of the drugs you have used. Steroids are usually known to cause such abnormalities. But these functions are reversible and you should get better after the side-effect of drugs is over. I would suggest you to see your doctor to co-relate the reports with the medication chart. If this is not due to drugs then there may be some underlying cause in the renal system which needs to be evaluated by proper Blood work and radiological investigations. All the best.
