recently I just had my annual bloodwork done. almost all area were fine, except the kidney section :
BUN 62 (range 8 - 50 mg/dl)
creatinine 1.8 (range 0.6 - 1.5 mg/dl)
uric acid 4.9 (range 2.4 - 7.0 mg/dl)
I follow a high protein diet, used to consume around 250gr/day but gradually reduced into 190-ish / day (1gr/lb bodyweight).
I did this test while I was using creatine (6 weeks into it to be exact), and I took 3gr creatine mono about 1 hour before the test...I took creatine first thing in the morning on empty stomach, and did my blood test 1 hour later (yes, dumb, I know....)
what do you guys think causing the high creatinine levels? did creatine ingestion before the blood test caused this?
Right now, I stop using creatine, and will took another test next week, and if the level does not improve, then I will see specialist.
I understand that this shouldn't be taken lightly. I never took any prohormones / AAS.
