Creatinine level
In recent blood examination, creatinine level came at 1.2. For last 2 years it was 0.78. Everything else in blood and urine test is normal including urea. Last year I started rigorous workout regime and muscle building. I am vegetarian. Do not take supplements. Have no other symptoms. Is it cause of concern? Can creatinine increase so much in year due to exercise?

creatinine levels can go up due to high blood pressure,diabetes,old age, diet, stress, intense workouts, illness/infection, dehydration,kidney stones etc. repeat your test after few days with proper hydration. also check your urine microalbumin levels, it is a better indicator of early renal dysfunction. revert with reports
