Bun/Creat “high”: We are all dying. ;-) But you are not going to die based in this lab test for a long time is my guess. Most likely you were dehydrated when blood drawn. Cause BUN to go up more than creat. Go to uptodate.com and read more. The best way to predict how long you will live is to look at your family history and your blood pressure now. Do not smoke, keep BMI < 25. Long life! Discuss with ur team.
