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). Check out http://labtestsonline. Org/understanding/analytes/ck/tab/test/ & http://www. Mayomedicallaboratories.

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?

The dose has to be adjusted within a very narrow range to try to prevent both rejection and kidney injury. ...Read more

My creatine is at 110umol. What can you advise me to do or take to decrease my crea or to stop it from increasing. I'm a male standing at 5'10. 27 yrs?

If your creatinine is not trending then there is certainly no need to "manage" it. Your cr is currently in a healthy range and unless you have some known kidney disease should not be a focus of concern.. ...Read more

What is the normal creatine level for someone with one kidney?

Not reliable: The creatinine will still likely be in the normal range, if the remaining kidney is normal.

A 24h for creatinine clearance is a better indicator of renal function. ...Read more
