My doctor indicated that my BUN test is probably elevated due to the elevated protein diet i am on, which is currently 185 gms of protein daily. I have an upcoming physical in which i need to have the bun score below 20 to avoid issues. I know that normally an elevated bun score is nothing to worry about given all else looks good, but for the purpsoses of this test i need it to be within normal limits.
My doctors suggestion to lower it was the following:
4 days out cut protein back to 70 gms a day and make up the caloric difference with olive oil and fish oil to make sure i dont gain any additional water weight ( i need to keep my weight down as well).
stop working out 5 days out
drink plenty of water to flush out the excess
but then I asked him if he had ever helped someone like this before and he said no. So I am wondering if anyone else knows if his suggestions will work or not. Or does anyone else have experience with this.
I did read this:
but it gave no feedback on whethe he was successful. It did seem inline with what my doctor said though.
any help is appreciated.
