Question Lupus and Kidney Function Creatinine 2.4

I recently had a blood draw from my doctor and my Creatinine level was at 2.4. Which is higher then it has usually been. The damage comes from lupus and the use of anti-inflamatories. I won't see a nephrologist till the end of the month. Should I start to really panic? Can higher levels cause muscle weakness and muscle twitches? Thanks for any replies

Re: Lupus and Kidney Function Creatinine 2.4

well, i can't really say. 'cause i don't know what's considered normal. but, i do know from my own exp with lupus (and new kidney prob) that my docs get me in quickly if they are worried.

do u have another MD or med professional u could ask in the interim to alleviate some worry?

good luck to you
