In brief: Blood Test

A normal BUN level is 7 to 22.
So yours is normal. A normal bun/creatinine ratio is 10. A value of 18 usually suggests dehydration.

In brief: BUN of 12

Your BUN of 12 mg/dl is normal as is your creatinine which is around 0.
66 mg/dl, based on your bun/creatinine ratio of 18. Remember, your BUN is a function of your protein intake and your state of hydration. Your creatinine is related to your muscle mass and renal function. You can also ask the physician who ordered the blood work on you for more information.
