I see you are worried about your BUN/Creatinine ratio

what is the BUN and creatinine levels themselves?

if you drank alot of water and you have a very low creatinine level, this can cause the ratio to go up above 20.

that is not dangerous if you don't have a history of kidney problems.

if your BUN and creatinine levels are both normal, then I would not worry.
