Re: Increasing BUN related to Heart failure?

Posted By Suzanne on May 19, 1999 at 12:18:03
Hi, my 78 year old grandmother has had several heart attacks
in the past year and been hospitalized for CHF with an estimated
ejection fraction of 15-20%.  Currently she
is stable, however her recent blood work has come back with abnormal
BUN(48).  Is this due to her heart problems or is it indicative
of a new problem?  thanks very much for any information.  Suzanne

An increased BUN is sometimes related to CHF.
