Thanks for your query.

I will try my best to provide you with best possible professional recommendations to your questions.
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.
Any condition that impairs the function of the kidneys will probably raise the creatinine level in the blood. It is important to recognize whether the process leading to kidney dysfunction (kidney failure, azotemia) is longstanding or recent.
The most common causes of longstanding kidney disease in adults are high blood pressure and diabetes mellitus. Certain drugs can sometimes cause abnormally elevated creatinine levels. Serum creatinine can also transiently rise after ingestion of large amount of dietary meat.
Creatinine level will vary depending on the disease. Kidney problem is vague description I would like to know the exact diagnosis, only after that i can speak about the prognosis.

Yet again, I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further queries.
