The Bun/Creatinine Ratio panel is a diagnostic evaluation that measures the ratio of two substances in the blood – BUN (Blood Urea Nitrogen) and creatinine. These are waste products generated by the liver and eliminated from the body through urine. The ratio of these two components provides valuable information about kidney function.

The Bun/Creatinine Ratio panel offered by Apollo 24/7 includes three tests - Urea-Serum, Blood Urea Nitrogen, and Creatinine, Serum.


Kidney disease often goes unnoticed until it reaches an advanced stage. However, some common symptoms may indicate kidney damage or dysfunction. These include fatigue, weakness, difficulty sleeping, decreased appetite, muscle cramps, swelling in hands and feet, frequent urination at night, foamy or bloody urine, high blood pressure, and sudden weight loss.

If you experience any of these symptoms for more than a few days, consult your doctor immediately.

Testing Procedure:

The testing procedure for this lab panel involves taking a small amount of blood from the patient's vein. The collection procedure is quick and easy, lasting only a few minutes.


Before undergoing the Bun/Creatinine Ratio test, patients have to fast for 10-12 hours to ensure accurate results. During the test, a phlebotomist will insert a sterilised syringe and collect a small sample of your blood. The sample is collected in a vial which is sent to a state-of-the-art laboratory where it is used to analyse your blood and provide accurate results.

Treatment Options:

When an individual’s Bun/Creatinine Ratio panel shows abnormal levels, there are various treatment options available depending on the severity of the condition. Some common treatments include medication, dialysis, and kidney transplant.

Benefits of Timely Diagnosis:

An early diagnosis can help prevent further damage to the kidneys. It also enables medical professionals to take appropriate measures to manage the condition effectively. Early detection helps individuals avoid complications associated with kidney disease such as high blood pressure, heart disease, nerve damage, and bone diseases.
