Hi and thanks for the query.

Your creatinine is at the high of normal, that is because of the increased protein intake and the exercise. A single reading of 1.4 is not significant since there is an obvious cause of increase. However, it would be worthwhile to stop your routine for 4 to 5 days and then get the creatinine levels done again and this time along with BUN. I also suggest that you increase your water intake.

Let me know if you have further queries.
