The doctor replying on the link StirBlue posted said this:

Many, many things can raise the creatinine level - including dehydration, medication, urinary obstruction, intrinsic kidney disease, hypertension, and diabetes to name but a few.
So there are lots of things that could be causing your problem. IMO, it would be best to discuss your situation with a health care professional who has had the opportunity to examine you, take your medical history and review your lab results.

Thanks, it's nice to know that. Thankfully, I have changed and am "clean". I'll find some milk thistle tomorrow!
