Thanks for your query.Your Creatinine level has gone high up to 3 mg% and there is presence of protein in urine.These findings are suggestive of Glomerulonephritis.Pl get following test done
1) renal Function Test
2) Ultrasound scanning of abdomen
3)Routine Urine examination
After getting the reports consult Nephrologist who will decide the further management.Since creatinine level is not that too high it is not necessary to go for Kidney Biopsy y at present.
