diagnosed with CKD, could a false reading be possible?

My husband has been a weightlifter for over 30 years and he has recently been diagnosed with CKD. Could his weightlifting cause a false reading from his lab work?

Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health forum.

Physical exercise and weight building can increase the Serum creatine levels to a certain extent, but will not cause severe derangement of lab values that occurs in chronic kidney disease.

CKD can result due to chronic hypertension that has not been treated adequately over the years.

I hope this helps.
