Hi

If your creatinine is high, it likely means that the kidney function isn't what it should be, i.e your kidney isn't 100%. One kidney should be enough to keep the creatinine levels normal, unless it has been affected(many reasons). If the kidney function isn't what it should be, and your hydration is fine, then there isn't anything that you can do to lower the creatinine
