My doctor told me my creatinine level is too high and we should decrease the Prograf dose. What problem can a high creatine level cause?

Creatinine elevation: Creatinine, produced by muscle cells,is not toxic. The level in blood is a marker of kidney function. Increased level usually indicates reduced kidney function. Prograf is an extremely important medication for transplant patients to prevent immune rejection but can cause toxicity to kidneys. The dose has to be adjusted within a very narrow range to try to prevent both rejection and kidney injury. ...Read more

High creatinine: You need to see a nephrologist (n) and have a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein done. This will give you an acutal measure of your kidney function.

You may need another agent to control your bp. See a n for more answers. ...Read more

How to treat high level of creatine kinase due to nerves?

Here's accurate info: Somebody's kidding you or there is a misunderstanding.

It's also high in a few illnesses your physician knows about, but not from "nerves". ...Read more
