I am not familuar with a creatinine of 373, could it be your creatine clearance? Generally Creatinine is .6-1.0 for women and up to 1.2 in men. The highest I have known of a creatinine going up to is 13 and that is when they started dialysis immediatly.
What other blood work has been run? Did you have a urinalysis?? What are those results as well as your blood counts.

how far away is your apt? Also do you exercise, if so how much? and/or have you had any type of trauma??
