I'd bet...: ...On dehydration, yes. Normal glucose and electrolytes, i assume, and no signs of UTI in the urine?

Dehydration?: With a bun:creatinine ratio of 31 and with a BUN of 26, your blood creatinine was .84. That may be normal for a female your age. If you were dehydrated, your sodium and chloride would be elevated, were they? If they were dehydration would be the most likely cause. Were you not able to ingest fluids?

Thanks for asking!: Could be 2 different problems, for example dehydration and urinary tract infection (uti). Worth looking into further, as elevated BUN is not typically present with frequent urination.
