    lower your dietary protein intake and stop working out for a week or two and get re-tested. your levels will probably be down and normal then

    Your creatinine is going to be high if you engage in vigorous resistance exercise and is a normal adaptation to exercise. There can be other disease processes but are typically easy to diagnose. If your MD is concerned because it is somewhat high and doesn’t take into account that you exercise then I think you need a second opinion.

    I haven’t been working out for a month. I did get blood test done and prior to the blood tests I fasted for 10 hours. I tore a ligament on my thumb.
    She did notice that I look like I exercise.
    I do Crossfit

    Is there any supps I can take or some OTC meds that can help lowering Creatinine levels?

    No there really isn’t any supplements to take. Creatinine is leaked from skeletal muscle cells. That’s why i was saying resistance exercise will naturally elevate it. Especially if you’re doing high intensity exercise like that. Your levels will be high due to the micro trauma suffered by the muscle during exercise. Again this is normal and a well established false positive reading for Kidney or muscle wasting disease.

    Exactly how out of range is your levels? Are taking Creatine monohydrate in any of your supplements?

    As long as you are positive the high serum values aren't caused by renal issues, increase your water intake in addition to what is posted above.

    Co-enzyme Q10 could help, but not to the same extent simple rest and water would
