Not dangerous: Depending on how muscular you are you could be normal. If you are skinny your creatinine could be borderline high. It would be prudent to consult a nephrologist. you may consult this site for info on estimated glomerular filtration rate. http://www.kidney.org/professionals/kdoqi/gfr_calculator.cfm

Creatinine 1.43: Could be normal for you. Ask for 24 hour urine collection and creatinine clearance.
