Urea Nitrogen, 24-Hour Urine without Creatinine

The Urea Nitrogen, 24-Hour Urine without Creatinine test contains 1 test with 1 biomarker.

About 80% of urinary nitrogen is in the form of urea which is the major end product of protein metabolism. Urea excreted in the urine is the primary method of nitrogen elimination; therefore, this test provides an approximate evaluation of nitrogen balance. Conditions associated with increased urine urea nitrogen are hyperthyroidism, high protein diets and post-operative states. Decreased levels are associated with convalescence, liver disease, toxemia and advanced renal disease.
