Very Slight Elevation in creatinine

I was wondering if I should be concerned about my creatinine level being flagged high on my most recent blood work. The lab range was "0.76 to 1.27" and my result was "1.28". This would be a very mild elevation but I did also notice my BUN result was a little higher than on my last blood work @ "13" (range 5 to 26). The previous test had my BUN level at "11".

I'm probably being a worry-wart to even ask about this but I have autoimmune thyroiditis and treated for hypothyroidism, plus have had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for about 7 years, so hard to say if I have any new, noticable symptoms. My phosophorous level is sometimes flagged very slightly low as well, in fact on the same test my creatinine was flagged one, one-hundreth of a point high, my phosphorous was low @ "2.3" (range 2.5 to 4.5).  My chloride is occassionally flagged very slightly high but not on this last test when creatinine was flagged.

I do use ibuprophen an average of less than once a day.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Any raised creatinine should be monitored, especially if you already have any other medical conditions, ibuprofen if you read the leaflet it tells you that it can cause kidney failiure, my recomendations are see a nephrologist, stop ibuprofen now, three raised creatinine results will confirm ckd, good site to read www.kidney.org
