Hi,
    Thanks for writing in. Creatinine is a chemical waste molecule that is generated from muscle metabolism. Creatinine is produced from creatine, a molecule of major importance for energy production in muscles.

Creatinine has been found to be a fairly reliable indicator of kidney function. As the kidneys become impaired the creatinine level in the blood will rise. Normal levels of creatinine in the blood vary from gender and age of the individual.

Normal levels of creatinine in the blood are approximately 0.6 to 1.2 milligrams (mg) per deciliter (dl) in adult males and 0.5 to 1.1 milligrams per deciliter in adult females.
So as the function of the kidney improves the level of creatinine will get back to normal in the blood. Kidney function can be monitored by getting an estimate of creatinine, urea and potassium.

Repeat the kidney function tests and if persistently high you might again require dialysis.
All the best.
