My bun creatinine ratio is 8 when it was supposed to between 10 24 how bad it is and what could be causing it and what can I do to incrase it thanks?
See below. The real values of BUN and creatinine are more important. Sounds like they are ok - otherwise you would have put those values in the question. If those two are ok, please do not worry.
BUN creatinine ratio. Your bun/creatinine is a relationship between your BUN (b) and creatinine (c). B is related to protein intake. If you have a low protein intake, you are apt to have a low b. If you are dehydrated (d), your b will rise. C is related to muscle mass and renal function. If you're d, you c will increase, not as much as your b. You did not give your b or c levels, speak to your physician about your labs.
