BUN/GFR 54.7: I would not worry. It is a ratio-calculated value . Your BUN is 29 ( normal < 20) but that could be due to either mild dehydration or high protein in body( unless you are actively bleeding) . Your creatinine is 0.53 which is great.The ratio is BUN/Cr 29/0.53 = 54.7 . Your GFR another number we look seriously at is 128 great, potassium is 4.4 normal . Do not worry it is an artifact of the math ...Read more
That is high...: BUN at 67.53 mg/dl alone indicates something wrong in the function of kidney because it's uncommon to raise to this level from dehydration or internal bleeding or excessive nitrogen intake. So, look into serum creatinine, electrolytes, etc. so to correlate with overall clinical pictures and deduce the realistic clinical significance. Hence, see & ask Doc for detail and specifics.
