No, anxiety will not necessarily lead to abnormal creatine level.
What is the Creatinine blood test?
A creatinine test reveals important information about your kidneys. If your kidneys aren't functioning properly, an increased level of creatinine may accumulate in your blood. The normal range for creatinine in the blood may be 0.84 to 1.21 milligrams per deciliter (74.3 to 107 micromoles per liter). However, this can vary from lab to lab, between men and women, and by age.
What Abnormal Results Mean?
Generally, a higher than normal level may be due to:
  • Blocked urinary tract
  • Kidney problems, such as kidney damage or failure, infection, or reduced blood flow
  • Loss of body fluid (dehydration)
  • Muscle problems, such as breakdown of muscle fibers (rhabdomyolysis)
  • Problems during pregnancy, such as seizures caused by eclampsia or high blood pressure caused by preeclampsia
So, anxiety will not elevate your creatine level.   keywords: can anxiety elevate creatine level
