Brief Answer:
GFR is normal, creatinine levels in the upper limit of normal

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

The normal range for GFR is 90 to 120, so yours is within the normal range.
Creatinine normal values range from 0.7 to 1.3 so your is within the upper limit of normal, so nothing to worry about.
GFR and creatinine are values that indicate the function of the kidneys.
I hope this answers your question.
I'd be happy to answer any further questions you may have.

Wishing you all the best.
