Complicated: You have chronic kidney disease. You need to find out what caused this. You need to discuss this with your doctor. If you are taking a drug like Ibuprofen and stop it your kidney function may improve.

High creatinine: You need to see a nephroloigist (n) for a history, physical examination and lab studies. You need a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance and protein determination. You also need more blood work and a renal ultrasound to see the size and morphology of your kidneys. If you have some obstruction of your urinary tract, lowering of you elevated levels may be possible. See a n for more infoirmation.
