In brief: It is not necessary

Excess of water can create new problems, so i would advise you to drink normal amounts as dictated by thirst.
In general a glass of water with each meal and once or twice between meals is adequate. If you have high protein and bun, you need to find the cause as these issues are of a serious nature, requiring a proper diagnosis. It could be kidneys damaged due to high proteins which is treatable.
