Seems a bit high,,: You are a big man, and your creatinine can be higher due to a large proportion of muscle mass in your body which is likely since you are large. It may also be higher from impaired renal function, and other lab readings, like BUN (blood urinary nitrogen), and sodium would indicate this, along with symptoms like edema or swelling in extremities. See your doctor for a complete work-up to be sure. ...Read more

Is 1.03 bad creatinine level?

Creatinine: Creatinine level depends on many things....Age, race, sex, muscle mass. For women, the usual creatinine is between 0.6 and 1mg/dl. For men, between 0.9 and 1.4mg/dl. As we age, the creatinine should lower slightly (less muscle mass). The number is important but so are the trends. Usually, I am not very concerned with a creatinine of 1 unless its someone very young or very small/frail. ...Read more

How to decrease creatinine levels?

How to decrease creatinine levels?

May not need to: Lab testing isn't "one size fits all." a lab may list 1.2 as the "upper limit of the reference range", but a muscular patient can and should have a higher level. When i was lifting daily, my creatinine stayed at 1.6, and an elite bodybuilder's is likely to 2.0 or so. The level itself doesn't make you sick; it's just one piece of information to tell whether there's kidney disease. ...Read more

Is a 2 creatinine level dangerous?

Is a 2 creatinine level dangerous?

Interpretation: Serum creatinine is affected by protein intake, gender, age, race, muscular build, and renal function. A rising creatinine is always of concern. "normal" on lab tests is generally less than 1.2 mg/dl. Renal function can be estimated with a more complex formula or measured with a 24 h urine collection. ...Read more
