Chill out dude YOU ARE FINE!!!!!

I am an expert on this since I had kidney failure and had to have a transplant.

Creatinine of 1.7 is well within the normal range

Are you really muscular, do strenuous workouts? People with a lot of muscle mass have slightly higher creatinine levels than people who are less muscular.

If there was something wrong with your kidneys you would have elevated Albumin levels in your urine, and the Doc would know something was wrong. Thats how they found out my kidneys were going bad.

One other thing, do not take non steoidal anti inflamatories like Advil and Alleve, and Motrin because they can cause serious damage to kidneys if used on a regualar basis.

Also if you ever get strep, SEE A DOCTOR. they think an untreated strep infection ruined my kidneys.

I really don't think there is anything wrong with you so quit worrying.
