First of all, try and calm down. I have kidney problems, but am not an expert on the subject. It could be that you were dehydrated at the time of the test, do to the vomiting....That said I would think that another trip to the Dr is in order to have a repeat test done.
Drink some water, drink some more, and then drink some more..... Also stay away from salt.... If you do have kidney problems, water, water, water, exercise, and maintaining a healthy diet is important.....
Creatinine measures how effectively your kidneys are working. Generally people with healthy kidneys have its value of below 1.0
Higher creatine level may result from damaged kidneys, probably due to some sort of kidney inflammations or from wear and tear. Kidney inflmmations come in mainly 2 types. Acute vs Chronic. Acute type may result from as simple as common cold and full recovery is very common. However, chronic type inflammation is more difficult to cure. It is the chronic inflammation that often leads to kidney failures requiring dialysis and eventual transplants.
