Bun and Bun/Creat Ratio addition to prior post
I forgot to mention that my creatinine level is .7 (.6-1.3).  

AST is a little below range (15-37) at 13.

Thanks again!

Hello and hope you are doing well.

As I mentioned before, BUN or blood urea nitrogen can be elevated due to high protein intake, inadequate fluid intake or poor circulation. If the BUN is elevated from dehydration, usually the creatinine, will be normal or even low on the same test. And if the BUN to creatinine ratio is high, it usually indicates dehydration. As your creatinine level is normal, and your BUN and  BUN to creatinine ratio are high, the most probable cause is dehydration. So, drink adequate fluids and rec check your values.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
