It would not be medically appropriate or safe for this site, our experts and our members--to interrpret the results of your test. The doctor will evaluate your past medical history and current situation to determine the most appropriate clinical course to take. If you track your food intake at SP, print and take your records to provide the doctor with more information.

Wishing you all the best!

It has to do with your kidney function. My son has a high BUN level due to some meds that he takes. If it's not too high there may not be a problem. Also, if you were dehydrated when you had the blood work done that can cause a high BUN/creatine level. I wouldn't worry too much until you talk to your doctor.

I am seeing my gp on monday to discuss blood tests results but was wondering if anyone knows exactly what this means? The research I've done indicates too much protein.

I try to have at least 30 grams a day which is actually below the RDA.
