Creatinine is also a bye product of protein metabolism in the body.
High creatinine in the urine means either kidney disease, increased muscle break down or high protein diet.
However, you also have mildly elevated protein in the urien which is not normal in high protein diet also.
Your kidneys need to be checked further.
my other tests indicated that my kidneys were fine
those were the only two elevated things. Is that normal?
did you have a serum creatinine and BUn level checked?
my creatinine level was .8
what about BUN level?
and my protein creatinine ratio was .05
my bun was 10
these are normal.
see, probably high protein diet is the culprit.
These tests need to be repeated after you cut down proteins in your diet to normal for about 2 weeks.
