Will my creatinine level raise from taking anabolic steroids? And will drinking lots of water bring it down for my drug screen that uses urine dilute

In brief: Both unlikely . . .

It's unlikely that anabolic steroids will affect your creatinine level, a measure of kidney function.
Drinking water may decrease blood urea nitrogen (BUN) but not creatinine. Different drug screens test for different things. Most employers check for opioid abuse, not anabolic use, unlike sporting oversight groups. Unfortunately, there's no way to get stuff out of your system any faster or hide it
