You may notice that I moved your message to the Kidney & Bladder group on Connect, as it might be easier to meet fellow members to join in and share their thoughts about creatinine levels.

Kanaaz, I have a question. My understanding is that creatinine is a marker only to identify kidney issues. The creatinine itself is not damaging. It only indicates a kidney issue since the creatinine may not be cleared by the kidneys if they are damaged. If that is true is it a good idea to reduce your creatinine level by tweaking your normal habits thus giving an incorrect reading on how well the kidneys are functioning? Thanks.
