Blood work CBC and CMP all normal except BUN high 23 and MCHC low 30 for the past 2 months. Any indications or interpretation?

In brief: ? dehydration

BUN was higher than normal.
It may have been because you did not drink enough water before the test. If creatinine is within normal limits, a high BUN is not worrisome. However you should discuss it with your doctor and decide if repeating the test is warranted.

If MCHC is the only "abnormal" result in CBC, that is not a cause for concern.
