I'm a 69 year old female - my BUN/creatinine ratio is 29. Should I be concerned?

In brief: No

if both value are basically normal or just a bit up at your age, you are fine.
You can get a ratio like that from eating a big steak. The ratio is useful only if other labs are abnormal and the person is obviously sick.
