creatine isa muscle in ur kidneys that shows how well or how not so well that the kidney funshion..so if your dads potassium is 5.5 thats a very sevre level..he should be on dialysis this high of potassium..the creatine is high...i went toxic on litiem this time last yr..my creatine went from 1.0  to 2.8  so my gfr  went to 4.8  i was in stage 2 renal failure secondary to lithiem toxicity  and lack of PO...so all the creatine does is shows good or bad..this is a simple blood test to determine KF.....i know it comes up and down...but if its say 2.8 for along time it wont go down that much to matter..cu the patient has already gotten KF....get your father to a dockter asap, to preform dialyses..on the potassium...the range is 3.5-5.0  and you say hes 5.5...i was 5.4  before and stopped eating  potassium  the best i could,..it went down to 4.8...please  check with his docter asap...
