Other factors affecting serum creatinine include: • dietary meat intake • drugs inhibiting tubular creatinine secretion (cimetidine, trimethoprim, cobicistat among others, can increase serum creatinine by up to 50µmol/L) • interference with colorimetric creatinine assays (especially ketones, cefoxitin, and flucytosine) increases the reported value by up to 40µmol/L • women, children, the elderly, and those with reduced muscle bulk also have reduced creatinine generation rates, and hence will have a lower serum creatinine for a given GFR • protein and creatine supplements.
