elevated creatine

Jan 23, 2005

My t cell count is 414 and I have been undetectable for over 4 years. My dr said my creatine level was slightly elevated at 0.12 as against 0.11. Is this a problem for my kidneys? I am on tenofovir, efavirenza nd 3tc and has only been problem since i switched to this medication about a year ago? Thanks.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Are you referring to creatine levels, creatine kinase (CK or CPK), or creatinine levels? If this is a creatinine level, then the normal levels are between 0.6-1.2 mg/dL. Thus the number that you stated would not be correct. Are the units available along with the numbers?

Quantitative RNA
CD4 and viral load?
