What's a way to decrease high bun and creatinine in my blood?

Get it evaluated

Creatinine
First of all, determine the cause and treat that. These values are usually high because of a reduction in kidney function or dehydration. See a kidney specialist (nephrologist).

If i was taking 200mg of spironolactone when i have my lab work done, would that affect the bun and creatinine level? would it make it higher or lower

Likely no effect,,,

Creatinine
This is a potassium sparing diuretic and is a weak diuretic other than this function. This and other diuretics should not have an effect on BUN and Creatinine as these are based on amounts in the blood and Creatinine is recovered by the kidney and so depend on renal function. Good luck.

What does it mean low creatinine levels and high bun creatinine ratio?

Muscle mass

Creatinine
Serum levels of creatinine depend on renal function, muscle mass and intake of muscles foods. A low creatinine level is of no consequence as long as you are not emaciated. paralyzed, or have extensive amputations. High ratio just reflects low creatinine.
