No problem: The ratio seems high because your creatinine is lower than usual. There is nothing with a low creatinine. Women tend to have lower creatinine due to smaller muscle mass, as compared to men. You lab results are fine.

Low creatinine is good. You do not need to increase it. However, if you are so inclined, you could get into weight lifting to increase you muscle mass which will increase it some. I would not be concerned about low creatinine, it is not a disease.

Looks good: You've ruled out kidney failure and serious electrolyte disturbances. There's nothing else to get excited about here.

Strange question: They don't affect the SG of either one. Why would you think that they do?
