I am about 59 years and healthy. I"ve had a Lap cholecystectomy and TURP (transurethral resection of the prostate) in December 2012. Recently during a routine blood screening my serum creatinine levels were at 77 which is a little lower than the normal reference levels.

I have neuropathy in my feet, fatigue at times, depending on Prograf and sugar levels. After my lung transplant surgery 8 years ago my creatinine level moved from 1.5 to 2.1.

Recently I was told I had CHF (congestive heart failure), now my blood pressure went to 90/48. My potassium and magnesium levels went low, and now creatinine level was 2.8. I already have diabetes type 2 well controlled, high blood pressure, and asthma.

I have been a diabetic patient for the past 15 years. Recently, I checked my creatinine level and found that it is 2.6 mg. As advised by my doctor, I took medication, but still the creatinine level stands at 2.6 mg.
