I had bloodwork done on tuesday that came back with a bun/creatinine ratio of 23. All other tests were normal. On wednesday night i had a kidney stone attack. Would that have raised my ratio?

In brief: Dehydration

Classically an increased BUN/Creat ratio reflects dehyration, which may also go along with kidney stones.
Drinking water as a habit may help. Also always try to catch stones in urine for analysis.
