Hi dear.Thanks for your query.

According to your description, creatinine is 82.Normal levels of creatinine is between 0.5-1.1mg/dl in individuals of your age.

I would request you to upload the reports using the reports tab(to compare with the reference values mentioned in the the reports) to evaluate your renal function.

Await your reply soon.

Brief Answer:
Likely to be Stage 1 CKD.Suggest a detailed work up

Detailed Answer:
Hello.Thanks for your quick revert.

I am glad that your creatinine levels are within normal limits.

Normal kidney function is a GFR of about 100(but eGFR results may only be shown as more than 60 or more than 90).

Albumin is normally <30mg/dl.If it is between 30-300mg/dl it is suggestive of microalbuminuria which indicates early/initial stages of kidney(glomerular) damage.

Since your GFR is >70 with evidence of proteinuria I would suspect early Chronic Kidney Disease(CKD).

I would suggest to consult a Nephrologist for a detailed work-up(renal and cardiovascular), evaluation and further management.Nothing to panic.

Hope this answers your query.
