Creatinine is elevated but egfr is normal. Kidney disease?

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.

So it doesn't mean one has heart disease, kidney disease, lung disease, or any internal organ disease.
