Is it possible to have high creatinine, high blood urea nitrogen and high potassium levels simultaneously?

Absolutely yes

Open-uri20121217-30583-mjmvgt
This is exactly what is seen with kidney (renal) failure. I am not making a diagnosis on this information alone. I can only advise strongly that anyone with elevation in BUN, Cr and potassium, as listed above, should see his/her physician immediately.

Recently blood urea nitrogen and serum creatinine levels what can I do..?

kidney dysfunction

Open-uri20130603-4629-wa1eml
Creatinine is a byproduct of muscle metabolism and is excreted by the kidneys. High serum creatinine generally indicate kidney damage.High levels can be seen in muscle damage, people who consume creatine supplements. BUN is also a byproduct of protein metabolism which is excreted by the kidneys.If serum BUN and creatinine are elevated, it suggests that there may be kidney dysfunction.
