Lab tests: These are both within normal limitsGet a more detailed answer ›
Just got blood work back. My bun was high at 24. Creatinine was normal at. 75. Are further tests warranted.?
BUN = 6 Creatinine =. 58 BUN/Creatinine = 10 I read that a 10 warrants further tests to determine if intrinsic kidney damage. Does that apply here?
I recently had a blood test. The BUN was 10 and creatinine was 1.2. I am a 36 year old male, Asian and am worried about the high creatinine levels?
Means not done: Not important. BUN & creat are what you need to have normal. It could be because one of the numbers is reported as "less than" e.g. BUN < 5 (less than 5). In this case you cannot calculate the ratio since you cannot use 5. The issue is not important anyways. You do not seem to have a kidney disease. ...Read more
My daughter of 7 years old have in Her blood test (bun/creatinine radio at 48.00) is that ok or has to be (10.0-20.0)?
Creatinine serum 1.5 mg/dl gfr 47-nb bun test 27 how bad is this. Can there be ways to improve on these results. Thank you?
Big picture: Everybody's kidney function declines some with age. I'm good with your BUN especially if you eat a lot of protein. And if you're a mature athlete, this may even be fine; creatinine varies with a man's muscularity. When I was lifting weights daily in my early thirties, my creatinine run 1.5 to 1.6 -- perfectly healthy. ...Read more
I am 49 year old male in good general. A recent blood test showed bun level at 27 and creatinine level at 1.4. Should I be concerned? What are possible causes?
My lab test results says. Bun/ creatinine ratio results 28, units h, reference interval lab 8-20. Can someone please tell me what this means.
What are the results: Of BUN and creatinine? Ratios often distort the meaning of raw values. All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that one needs to know the actual values to provide an opinion. ...Read more

Hard to say: Without knowing your past medical history and past testing. But from what you mention your testing suggest some element of kidney dysfunction. It's not clear if it's chronic or acute. But you should reach out to your doctor if you have questions too. He/she will know you vest to be able to give you the most accurate description of what's going on. ...Read more

Kidney and Liver T: Egfr (normal >60), creatinine, bun/cr ratio are all lab values to suggest how the kidney function is, ast is an enzyme secreted by the liver, if its elevated there is something wrong with the liver (it varies from mild to severe). Check with your doctor or mentor about the normal values and the abnormal ones. ...Read more
Neg c-anca & p-anca, but pos pr3 & pos mpo by ELISA 5 consecutive tests. Sed/bun/creatinine good. Neutrophils 76% @ 60 days prednisone. Thoughts?
Age 65 w/fem. Serum Creatinine 1.02. Bun 8. Ratio 8. Egfr down from 70's to 58. Took Zantac (ranitidine) 150 32 hrs. Prior to blood test. No health concerns. CKD?
I don't think so: With a BUN of 8, anybody worried about their kidneys should be very happy. The lack of real science behind the "EGFR" promotion is showcased by the adjustment for race "because black people are more muscular." Many of us in pathology think this is an attempt by Big Pharma to make healthy people think they are sick. I'd be glad for good health. Creatine's fine for your age. Best wishes. ...Read more
