Bun/Creatinine ratio
Hello

Just received my lab work and my BUN is 18 and creatinine 0.73 - both normal but the BUN/creat ratio is 25. What does it mean? Everything is ok is there something wrong with my kidneys?

Unless it becomes a chronic issue lasting a few months, I wouldn't work about it. Ratios can take some large fluctuations sometimes if the inversely related values play together in sync, and dehydration can cause just that type of situation. Just make sure you're fully hydrated before your next UA and check then.
