Hi Frennis,
For someone who only has one kidney, your creatinine level is PERFECTLY NORMAL.

I went to the doctor because I had frequent urinations.  I took lab work  and my BUN was normal but my urine test said my creatine was 300 and and I had a 1+ blood in my urine.  He said it was a kidney infection but could this be a sign of Kidney problems.  I am taking medication for thyroid.
