Are elevated creatinine levels a matter of concern?

My last check up showed stage 3 kidney disease but my Dr didn t seem concerned . I asked if I should be doing something like diet and exercise and he said no. But he ordered blood tests every 2 weeks since April because my Creatin was High 1.5. Each time the results were in he said it was better and still above normal. I m just wondering if I need to be Proactive. This is my Health. I am a 31 yr cancer survivor and (second time)11yr cancer survivor.

I had a blood test last week and the Creatinine reported was 1.31 mg/dL, an indication it was high. The average is reported to be between 0.76 and 1.27. Should I be concerned, and if so, about what. This blood test was in the office of my arthritic doctor.

Hello...I am a 53 y/o blk male, 6 3 ...258 pounds and have a creatinine level of 1.4. Is this something to be concerned about? I was told the normal range was up to 1.2 but perhaps with my height and weight, it could be higher and lossing 5 to 10 pounds may bring it down.
