Hi faryhan yes dehydration can be associated with elevated Creatinine level, the lower your fluid volume is the higher the BUN and Creatinine. UTI also can come up from dehydration. Drink lots of water flush the Kidney out and also washes away bacteria, also as a woman remember to wipe from front to back ecoli is from the bowel area. Hope this helps
