I have had some recent blood tests done which all came back negative, however, my doctor said that my creatinine levels are currently 104 so she would like to do another test in 3 weeks time. She has informed me not to worry, however I feel until I have the next test done i will not be able to rest.

Initially 252. But I had a very severe pain due to a kidney stone in my urinary track. I was prescribed a pain killer. After taking a few of the pain killer pills my blood test results showed my creatinine went up to 490. After a couple of days without the pain killers my blood test showed that my creatinine level was 384.

I am 74 years old and I have had diabetes for 13 years as well as high blood pressure. My blood test for creatinine was 189. I want to know if that is high for kidney disease.

I do a monthly blood test of everything and my creatinine has been A 44 for awhile. I know it's not good when it is too high, especially since I had kidney failure in 2008 but according to my doctor 44 is good.

My father was an alcoholic with dementia and PKD. He went through alcohol detox in February at which time he entered into a care home with good meals, thymine, vitamins and Namenda for Alzheimer's. His creatine test in February was 2.1, May was 2.8, and July was 3.2. The doctor stopped his Lisinopril and increased another BP med. He is also taking Aten enol, Ativan and vitamins.
