In brief: It can be.

Any situation that causes excessive loss of body fluids (vomiting, diarrhea, severe bleeding, fevers, heat exposure, certain medications, etc) can lead to reduction in the body's entire blood volume.
When this happens, part of your body's natural response is to reduce blood flow to some of its organs including kidneys. This can lead to kidney injury which can be detected by a high creatinine.
