I’ve been taking Propecia for over a year now and had a blood test recently done. It shows that my serum creatinine is in the slightly above normal zone which is an indication of possible kidney dysfunction.
Can propecia cause kidney damage? If not, can I still continue taking it?
As I’ve written before, there is no documented adverse effect of Propecia on the kidneys.
Elevated creatinine is something that you should understand. I’ve written about that before as well, here. What I generally do is first repeat the test in the case that the lab test is in error. Then your doctor will dive into it more deeply. Ask your prescribing doctor if you should continue taking the medication, as I cannot give personal medical recommendations.
