yes. usually it is higher after donation.
i donated my kidney 3 months ago.
before donation creatinine was 1.07
immediately after operation it was 1.8
now it is between 1.53-1.63
According to literature it is accepted up to 1.9 for those with one kidney .
normal range for rest of the population as you know .6 – 1.3

before accepting you as a donor you go through different steps. once this step is ok you go to the next one.
blood grouping and kidney ultrasound
blood tests : KFT / FBS/ etc – blood pressure assessment
ECG/ ECO / MRI for the kidny
HLA / Ag-Ab reaction.
Once everything is ok an appointment is set for the operation.
Best of luck.
