I was just told my creatinine was low. I was having a CT scan on my head, and they did not finish the procedure because of this. I was having the procedure to try to find out why I keep having extreme vertigo.

Had some blood work yesterday at the hospital. Series of blood tests done and my creatinine level was 68. I had a ultra sound done about a month ago and they found a small mass on my left kidney. Should I be concerned

I recently had a kidney removed. My creatinine level was 1.6 and my cardiologist was concerned. I'm wondering if this is abnormally high.

Two days ago had some test done regarding kidney stones. Creatinine level was 0.2. They called the doctor before they would inject the dye and continue the test. They told me my level was low. I am anxious to see the doctor Monday and get the test results and discuss this level.

I am 64 years old and my creatinine level is 0.53. I understood that it is normal. I am able to assess this from the valuable information furnished in this article.
