I had bloodwork done today at a physical. I noticed my BUN/Creatinine Mass Ratio was a little high while the BUN and Creatinine separately were normal. I looked up the possible causes of that and didn't like the things I see. My results are on the left. Standard range is on the right. Should I be concerned?

BUN 13 mg/dL Standard range: 7-25 mg/dL
Creatinine 0.80 mg/dL Standard Range:0.60-1.30 mg/dL
BUN / Creatinine, Mass Ratio 16.3 " Range:11.7-13.9

Diagnosed with UC 1986, got salmonella food poisoning which landed me in the hospital for 10 days and caused UC plus ended up with a kidney infection all at the same time.

Just recently changed to Generic Colazal 750mg. 3 pills 2X a day.

Also on Protonix 40mg for Acid Reflux.

UC pretty much under control other than occasional flares.

Probably the best thing for you to do is to get your primary care physician to refer you to a good urologist who would be an expert at interpreting the numbers. That will give you much better peace of mind.

I did hear from the PCP today through mychart and she said that my kidney and liver function was normal as well as my BUN and Creatinine levels along with my EGFR so she wasn't really concerned with that unless the EGFR is lower than the standard.
