Should I be worried about my raised serum creatinine levels?

Q: As per the advice of the doctor we have done the testing of S. Creatinine and the level was 1.83. The doctor said that my kidneys are functioning only 90%. He has given tablets for the period of one week. He says that this is not a major problem because my age is 60 years, so the levels may be high. Please advise me.

A:Given your age and serum creatinine, your kidneys are not normal but if your kidneys continue to work at the same level, it will not pose any threats to health. However, it is important to find out why your creatinine is elevated. Because certain disease conditions like diabetes, hypertension, etc may result in gradual worsening of kidney function if they are not treated. Therefore, your doctor should be able to advise you if any further treatment or precautions are recommended.
