Brief Answer:
Yes Kidney stone can cause slight variation in Serum Creatinine levels .

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query .

Your recent creatinine levels (1.24) is slightly higher than normal level of 1.2 which was 0.9 three years ago .

This slight rise though not significant can be due to presence of Kidney stone which causes inflammation and back pressure changes in kidney .

However it comes to normal levels once it has been treated with appropriate treatment .
