No this is totally fine more likely you were a little on the dehydrated side but nothing to worry about

what do you mean by a little on the dehydrated side?
Expert:  DrKnowsBest replied 5 years ago.
If you are slightly dehydrated your bun to creatinine ratio goes up and could reach closer to 20

can this be a probelm, because i do not get up to go to the bathroom like i used to.and i went to the uruologist and he says their was a little bit of red cells in my urine. do you think i have kidney disease?

can this be a sign of kidney disease
Expert:  DrKnowsBest replied 5 years ago.
Red cells can be a sign but also can be from exercise or a lot of time on your feet
The higher creatinine the more likely kidney disease not as much a bun thing
