Increase in Creatinine Due to Use of Fenofibrate
Hypothyroid patients have increased cholesterol and tryglycerides. To manage this lipids problem, both statins and fenofibrates are used.
Fenofibrate increases blood creatinine, but does not change the glomerular filtration rate in patients with mild renal insufficiencyhttps://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10081035

The fenofibrate can give an increased creatinine reading. It is reversible.
