What's your creatinine level?

I went to the docs the other day and creatinine level was 1.5. The normal range in their lab is 0.6-1.2. My doctor suggested I do the creatinine clearance test (24 hour piss test), so I'm gonna do that tomorrow. I know the more muscle mass you have might make your creatinine levels higher. Just curious to see other numbers from the members of this board.

Mine was also 1.5, so I was retested 6 weeks later and it was still 1.5. I have not really used any serious gear so I think you are correct it more accurately reflects total muscle mass. In fact, I did a serious PubMed search on the topic. The more muscle mass you carry, the higher your creatinine

Also, Creatine breaks down to give creatinine, but, the medical literature suggests that this does not significantly contribute to high creatinine readings. They did studies in rats with like 5X a normal doseage of creatine, and it did not change serum creatinine. I also had my retest value of 1.5 when I was off creatine, but my first test of 1.5 was with creatine supplementation (so no difference for me with or without 5 grams creatine each day)
