My mother is 100 years old and was hospitalized for heart failure. Her creatinine level is at 700. Doctors say that she is at a point of no return.

I'm on dialysis. I have a GFR of 0. My creatinine was up to 1270. I live in Canada and our units are different. I think it's about 20 in the United States. I feel terrible when my creatinine is over 1000.

I had an increase in creatinine after a head CT with contrast. Wonder if this is normal; value is 1.32.

My husband’s creatinine level is 3.5. He is an alcoholic and is in the hospital now. We have to get his levels down.
