Brief Answer:
A number of causes

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ma'am, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but high creatine levels indicate abnormal renal function due to chronic renal damage.. This could be due to chronic renal infection or inflammatory condition as nephritis or pyelonephritis.. Also could be due autoimmune disease as lupus or due to decreased blood flow to the kidney as in cases of severe dehydration , heart disease and low blood pressure.. I hope I answered your question ..
