creatin levels
May 17, 2007

my creatine levels are of latley.i take truvada and that the cause?how do i loweer them?

Response from Dr. Henry

I am not sure if you are asking about your creatinine levels are high (can be due to renal/kidney problems that can be aggravated by the tenofovir in Truvada) or creatine levels which are rarely measured or helpful (other better tests available).

Flushing and night sweats
Depression / Hair loss
