When I was lifting weights every day, my creatinine ran 1.6-1.8 and that reflected my muscle mass -- a GOOD thing. I am MUCH more concerned about your elevated SGPT; you're getting it worked up, right? Forget about the other labs. ...Read more

More information is needed to address the issue. Do you stand for long periods of time during the day? If yes that may explain pooling of fluid in the legs during day and mobilization at night.

I suspect the former two causes and not the latter cause in your case. ...Read more

You should see a doctor and start with an exam and urinalysis and culture. ...Read more
