    Creatinine and Anion Gap (what in the name of *** is that?) is low on my basic metabolic stuff.

    Ok I'm not going to do this to myself :-|

    has something to do with kidney functions I believe. Come on you medical minds, explain this one, for both of us. :)

    Elevated creatinine is much more of a concern that low. Is it slightly low or very low? Levels can be low due to decreased muscle mass.

    Thanks guys. Thank you so much. I can mentally relax this weekend. I don't go back until Monday to see the doc.

    I wonder if too much magnesium (500 mg at bedtime) is doing it. My doc knows I take it.

    Thanks for the info.

    It was slightly low. I don't have it in front of me and hubby is sleeping but just a point or two under normal range. (anion gap)
