Nephrologist (Kidney Specialist) Questions Creatinine

Is a low creatinine level a problem?

I am 3 months pregnant and a recent test report indicated that my creatinine is slightly on the lower side. Is that a problem in terms of pregnancy?

As you get pregnant, your volume expands and creatinine may lower. Don't worry. If creatinine is going higher with lower kidney function, then it's something to worry about.
It is normal to have a low creatinine level when pregnant. So it seems that your kidneys are doing the normal thing!
