High Creatine plasma results

Mar 6, 2011

I have been taking atripla now for almost a year. I had labs done about 3 months ago, and the showed my creatine plasma at 1.5, and that i had been increasing since the start of the medication. Should i be worried that this is an indication that my kidneys are starting to fail

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate what the creatinine level was prior to starting atripla, or whether your are taking any other medications or have other ongoing medical problems, so hard to assess the increase. It should be evaluated by your doctor, but at this point your don't have to worry about kidney failure at all.

why my cd4 still remain low?
