Thank you for your question.

The creatinine is slightly on the higher side but not too concerning.

I would recommend that you should increase your fluid intake and repeat this test after four to eight weeks time after you have significantly increased your fluid intake.

Low fluid intake can cause this result as well.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have. The only way I am credited here
