Can you tell me what medical problems you have and what medications you are on?

Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.
A BUN level of 19 is not that bad. Slightly elevated BUN levels are typically a sign of dehydration. If you drink plenty of water to make your urine clear, this level should come down to normal. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions.
