    Hi everyone,
    I have a biopsy scheduled at the hospital for my kidneys at 9:30 Central Time. My kidneys are functioning at +/- 50%. My creature is slightly elevated. Doctor is trying to figure out why

    Thanks in advance

    Should have read my creatine is high. I don’t have an elevated creature....that I know of.

    Thank you everyone.

    Can think of a number of things that raise creative, not all,of which are bad.

    I’m all left brain. I could use an increase in creative.

    Sometimes being dehydrated from not drinking enough water can mess with your kidneys. Do you drink enough water daily?

    I wish it was that simple. In three years I think the doctor would have figured that one out.

    Fair enough. Just wanted you to know from personal experience that my creatine levels were a little off at one point and when I asked my doctor what could cause that he said it could be something as minor as not drinking enough water, which I probably tend not to drink enough of. I have been trying to get better at it, though. I guess it depends on how bad your levels are as to whether or not a lack of sufficient water could be a cause.

    Doctor was recommending my wife should drink 3L of water a day (15 glasses) since she had the kidney stones. She drinks a lot, but that's a crazy amount unless you want to spend all your time in the bathroom.

    That's what I normally drink each day. 3 liters. Maybe a little more. I drink 8 ounces every 45 minutes.

    Maybe it's easier to do in warmer climes?
