Customer Question

I took blood tests one week apart from two different doctors. My creatinine on the first test was .99 and on the second test was 1.34. My eGfr on the first test was 68 and on the second test was 48. I was put on zetia for ten days during this period and
my cholesterol went from 270 to 207 . My body is aching all over, my muscles are sore. Bun 7mg, Creatine Kinasen71, calcium 9.6, sodium 140mmol, potassium 4.3, chloride 106, AG 10mmol, glucose 98. I have read that zetia can negatively impact creatinine blood
levels . I am a 66 year old black female with a moderately muscular frame. I had 24 hour urine clearance test about six months ago and it came out fine. How can my creatinine and Egfr be so different in seven days?
