What are the reasons for high creatine levels in blood?

There is something called creatine that converts to creatinine, which is a waste product. It’s supposed to go through the urine, but if it’s backing up into the blood, this can mean that there could potentially be a kidney problem or something else going on.

Creatine, in general, helps recycle ATP (an energy currency). Many people take creatine for their exercise performance.

A few causes of high creatinine in the blood (but it’s low in the kidneys):

1. Kidney damage

2. Ace inhibitors

3. Intense exercise

4. More muscle mass

5. Too much dietary meat (cooked)

6. Creatine supplements
