In brief: Creat fluctuates

Many things cause Cr to go up or down.
So need to answer these questions. 1.What meds r u taking? 2. Any imaging procedure with contrast? 3. recent dehydration? 4 recent illness" and many more. When you had gotten all this together consult with me and can probably help figure out what is going on.
