Complications could include:
A blood urea nitrogen (BUN) test checks kidney function by measuring how much urea nitrogen is in your blood.
Your body becomes overloaded with toxins if your kidneys can't do their regular job. This can lead to kidney failure and even be life-threatening.
Bacteria that enter the urethra are usually flushed out through urination. However, bacteria that aren't expelled out of the urethra can cause an infection.
Cystitis is inflammation of the bladder. It's most often caused by a bacterial infection known as a urinary tract infection (UTI). It can become a serious health issue if the infection spreads to the kidney.
