creatinine levels

I had a nephrectomy 10 years ago and my kidney function blood levels have been perfect...until about 6 months ago when things started to go haywire.  My creatinine started inching up little by little and is now 1.2.  My egfr has been going down.  My primary sent me for an ultrasound of my remaining kidney, which came back fine.  I am not diabetic and do not have high blood pressure.  I stay hydrated.   He does not know what is going on with my kidney.  I am scheduled for my 6 month ct scan next month, which I usually have with contrast, but I am thinking my creatinine is too high for the contrast this time.   Anybody else have problems with their levels for reasons known or unkown? Or any advice about the ct contrast?  Thanks.

Ask your PCP for a referral to a urologist or nephrologist.  You don't ask your accountant about car problems.

Wow.  My creatinine jumped to 1.9 after my left kidney was removed in July, and has stayed there.  No one seems real concerned but it's now too high for contrast CAT and MRI scans which makes it harder to detect any cancer regression.  Just one more sucky thing on this pony ride from hell.
