In short, is borderline high BUN and Creatinine something to worry about? Is the high protein diet damaging my kidneys?
Here's the long winded version:
I went for a regular physical and the doctor thought I had recently had a minor infection of some kind and ran my blood to find that she was probably correct and that the infection was subsiding which explained lack of symptoms. Overall, she thinks I'm healthy.
Anyway, my BUN was 33.0 mg/dl and the Creatinine was 1.3 mg/dl. She says the creatinine is slightly high, and the BUN is well high. I workout really hard lately and have recomposed from 20% to 13% BF remaining at 190 lbs. I also take Jack3d on and off (on now), and whey isolate. No creatine other than the Jack3d. High protein intake overall.
Bottom line, I told my doctor about the creatine and working out hard with high protein and she still did not like those numbers. Do I need to start protecting my kidneys?
