A member asked:

Bun/creatinine ratio = 20...taking diovan (valsartan) hct 160/12.5 for htn-could diuretic in bp med be affecting level?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Likely: We have a saying in laboratory medicine, "treat the patient, not the numbers." you may be a little dry from your diuretic or simply not having drunk water before the exam. Generally, there's little reason to focus on your lab numbers; look at how your medication is affecting you generally, and how you feel.
