Blood urea nitrogen is influenced by the liver and kidneys. Blood urea nitrogen is a waste product produced by the liver from proteins from the diet, and is eliminated from the body by the kidneys.
The determination of blood urea nitrogen is an important index of kidney function. Impaired renal function or increased tissue protein breakdown are associated with increased urea nitrogen levels, whereas liver damage is associated with decreased levels.
