Creatinine levels test tell about your kidney function. High levels indicate renal aka kidney insufficiency. Yours was only midly elevated so the doc feels it is not a concern. Sometimes elevated levels can be cause by medications such as ACE inhibitors so a slighlty elevated level is not a problem.
