Creatinine is a waste product of muscle metabolism. The normal creatinine level ranges from 0.6 to 1.2 for adult males and 0.5 to 1.1 for adult females. It is likely to raise due to kidney failure. Certain drugs can sometimes cause abnormally elevated creatinine levels. A large amount of dietary meat, fever and dehydration may also lead to transiently increase of creatinine.
