So is serum creatinine 1.1. However, creatinine relates to muscle mass. If you are small muscled as a. 55 yo woman, then creatinine of 1.1 or 1.0 may indicate some minor impairment in its excretion.

I am 36 years old, male. My creatinine is 1.13 mg/dl. In your estimate of my gfr, do I already have the dreaded kidney disease? Pls. Answer. Thanks.
Don't treat numbers: Creatinine reflects muscularity; when I was lifting weigbts daily I ran as high as 1.6. In my experience, all muscular men run creatinine like yours or higher. For the past few years, labs have been turning out "estimated gfr's" based on spot creatinines without any reference to the human being tested, dismaying nephrologists. I hope you and your physician will ignore this fad. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Maybe/depends,,,: If you are a big person with a normal egfr, and BUN, you might have a high Creatinine due to a lot of muscle mass. However, if you are small, and of light build, you could have an issue, and so a more extensive work up would be needed, including review of your meds, if you are taking any. Best of luck. Read more

Having said that, it would have been helpful to know the actual creatinine and eGFR values.

Insist on a full explanation -- it's your absolute right as the patient. Read more
Afraid that I have kidney disease, pain on hands while pt perform acupressure, said its kidney prob, I have normal s. Creatinine and urinalysis. Help.
Doctor can help: A primary care doctor can evaluate to see what might be the concerns. Having hand pain when doing some sort of acupressure doesn't mean anything in modern medicine... So it doesn't mean one has heart disease, kidney disease, lung disease, or any internal organ disease. However, if parts of the hand or fingers hurt when pressed (not pressing too hard), one's doctor can check for hand inflammation. Read more
