Brief Answer: Are you referring 7.8 to serum creatinine? Detailed Answer: Hello, I have gone through your query. In my opinion values like you presented usually mean the serum creatinine levels in the body. Value like 7.8 means creatinine levels in blood is very high (normally kidney clears out creatinine into urine) and the kidneys are not working. Levels like 4.0 means kidneys are 25% working and 5.0 means kidneys are 15% working and values like 7.8 means the kidneys are at the end stage. But to answer you correctly, it would help if you could share with me what that number actually is referring to. Hope this information helped you. Awaiting your response so that I can guide you better. Regards,
