Abstract

We report the case of a renal transplant recipient presenting with elevated serum creatinine levels whilst taking oral creatine ethyl ester (CEE), but not creatine monohydrate (CM). Standard investigations for allograft dysfunction, including Doppler ultrasound and renal biopsy, were normal. Serum creatinine normalized following cessation of the supplement. CM is poorly absorbed and does not affect creatinine. In contrast, CEE is converted and absorbed as creatinine, elevating serum levels. In such cases, creatinine is not a valid surrogate for glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Alternate methods of GFR measurement should be considered and a rigorous clinical and drug history taken.
