How can I lower my creatine level?

Lots of water: If high cr is due to intrinsic kidney disease, there is no way to realistically change it and no benefit to trying. Creatinine is not the problem, the broken kidney is the problem. If you lose a lot of muscle mass your creatinine will drop and you may drink a lot of water but these do not fix the kidney. ...Read more

No: Creatinine is an indirect marker of the filtration capacity of the kidney. Uremia is present in kidney failure. Unfortunately, no medicine can specifically improve filtration of the kidney. ...Read more

What supplements would lower creatine kinase levels.

?

None: No supplements will lower creatine kinase which signifies potential muscle breakdown when elevated. In past, we tested CK when we suspected a heart attack. Levels can also be elevated when muscles are damaged (rare condition = rhabdomyolysis).

Can taking any supplement for a period of time lower the natural levels of the supplement after it is all done? Creatine, glucosamine, vitamins, etc?

Yes it can: Creatine, along with phosphate, occurs in the body naturally as a very important component of your energy metabolism system. Research has shown that the effects of supplements of combined creatine phosphate are due to increased muscle mass, making this supplement especially useful for athletes who are involved in "short burst" activities, such as lifting heavy weights, making tackles as a football. ...Read more

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

What is the normal creatine level in general population?

0.6 to 1.2: Normal creatinine is 0.6-1,2. Body mass, pregnancy, muscle mass, age, sex and state of hydration can effect the value. A large muscular man may have a higher creatinine than a small old lady with little muscle. Weight lifters with large muscle masses can have sometimes creatinines which exceed normal levels but when renal function is measured in other ways function is normal. ...Read more
