What can I do if my serum creatinine level is 1.5mg/dl. Is it high and if so how can I lower it?

High creatinine: You may not be able to lower your creatinine level of 1.5, as it depends on what caused it to be that high.

Depends who you are: I'm well-muscled and when I was lifting weights every day, my creatinine ran 1.6-1.8. If on the other hand you're a petite lady or one of the couch potatoes on which our "reference ranges" are based, this is whispernig a concern about possible very mildly compromised kidney function.
