High Creatinine Serum level

Hello,

I recently visited a local dermatologist here to address my concerns about my adult acne. After careful consideration, I selected to try Accutaine.  After the initial month of blood test, my creatinine serum level read 1.07 with a BUN count of 14.  Shortly thereafter, about 4 weeks, I visited his office again to obtain my prescription for Accutaine.  Another blood test was ran to make sure that all levels were okay and to confirm that I was not pregnant.  This second blood test then read that my Creatinine Serum level read 1.25 and BUN still at 14 and GFR at 58.  At this time my derm advised me that to obtain a prescription, I will need to visit an Internal Specialist and receive a Creatinine clearance before any further prescriptions could be written.

Please advise of your professional opinion.

Thank-You!
