Customer Question
Hi my bun creatine...

Hi my bun creatine level is 24. the range was 23 I am currently on losartan for high bp so concerned, could it just be dehydration?

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?

Last blood test was 6 months ago and was normal . yes high bp in family

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Took antibiotic with losartan two weeks ago and had swelling while on it but swelling gone now

This is nothing concerning or anything to worry about.

This does not indicate that you have kidney disease.

Let me know if you have more questions.
