Normal levels of creatinine in the blood are approximately 0.6 to 1.2 milligrams (mg) per deciliter (dL) in adult males and 0.5 to 1.1 milligrams per deciliter in adult females.

Laboratory test results need to be assessed keeping in mind the complete clinical status of a patient.

The lab values mentioned in your history is indicative of possible chronic kidney disease (End stage renal disease).

The treatment of CKD depends on the underlying condition, and the presence of issues and severity of proteinuria, hypertension, etc.

Only in severe conditions, where the kidney disease is progressing rapidly, does the life expectancy is reduced.

Even in such cases, regular dialysis and procedures like renal transplantation can help to prolong life.

You might consult with a nephrologist along with all the medical reports and he may be able to review them and explain you in specific details about your current status and further management.
