Stop worrying: You're a grown man now. Creatinine fluctuates a bit from day to day, and this could be the explanation. And it varies with your current degree of muscularity. When i was lifting weights daily, mine ran 1.6-1.7. Why not try to put on some muscle and see if you can't raise it higher? It's a mistake to look just at a lab value apart from the person. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My creatinine rose from 2.38 to 4.68 in 1 year in spite of following prescribed diet and medicine. Is there any medicine to stop increase?

Yes: Lab values very both day to day and as diseases wax and wane. As a pathologist, i set little by clinicians' estimates of gfr; i'd follow your BUN and creatinine, and urinalysis and urine protein instead. If you were a bit dry last year and drank a lot of water this year, there's anr explanation. Albumin 3.8 is within normal range. "treat the person, not the numbers." good luck. ...Read more
