Were your creatinine blood test results higher than normal levels? If so, what was the diagnosis and what action was taken to lower the creatinine levels?

I am a 71 year old female in perfect health but twice in the last year the creatinine level in my blood tests was 1.23 so my PA wants me to go to a specialist. I smoked for 50 years, but stopped over a year ago and have had every test known to man and so far have no signs of anything wrong with me.

I had a creatinine blood test approximately a year ago. The creatinine levels were 1.24. I was told this was high and I should be retested in a year. I have been retested and it is still 1.24. I'm wondering if this is normal for me or should I be concerned I started weight training a couple of years ago and I am thinking of trying a supplement.

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.
