In brief: Maybe/depends,,,

If you are a big person with a normal egfr, and BUN, you might have a high Creatinine due to a lot of muscle mass.
However, if you are small, and of light build, you could have an issue, and so a more extensive work up would be needed, including review of your meds, if you are taking any. Best of luck.
