My blood creatinine is above normal. Can it cause hair loss?

Can high Creatinine levels cause hair thinning? I had a regular blood test done and results showed that my Creatinine was above normal. I also noticed that my hair looks thinner than normal. Could it be the reason?

Creatinine is a byproduct of muscle breakdown and the more muscles you have, the more creatinine your body produces which must be cleared by your kidneys. The kidneys maintain the blood creatinine in a normal range but when it is elevated is often signifies impaired kidney function or kidney disease. Of course, any illness can contribute to hair loss.
