Dr. Fred McCurdy answered:

what creatine level or gfr level makes dyalysis necessary?

Ten

Dialysis
It is generally accepted that a GFR of 10 or less or a serum creatinine level of 10 or higher to the point at which dialysis is started. However, dialysis is started when all other therapies have or are failing and the only alternative left is dialysis. Why? Because dialysis is a huge life changer for anyone irrespective of age.

What does it mean when your creatine levels are high.

Creatinine Levels

Blood
It means your kidneys are not working well. They are having a hard time to clean the blood of all the waste products they should excrete into the urine. This is very serious and I would hope that you are getting good medical attention to make sure the cause of the problem is identified and treatment instituted.

Dr. Jack Rubin answered:

How to treat dehydration and high creatine levels?

Dehydration

Dehydration
Dehydration is treated with fluids, which can given either by mouth or intravenously, depending on how dehydrated the patient is. How low one's creatinine (C) falls after hydration depends on what the person's baseline C was. Normally, the greater the serum sodium and creatinine are the greater the percentage fall in both after fluids are given. If dehydration is severe, a person is hospitalized.

Is a creatine level of 1.15 high?

No

Blood
At your age, this is something I would watch, but it could be caused by you not drinking enough water before getting your blood drawn. If everything else looked good on your labs, then make sure you drink a glass or two of water before going to the lab next time and see if it goes down.

Dr. Gurmukh Singh answered:

Is Chlorophyll safe to consume if you have a high creatine level of 1.6?

Plant pigment

Creatinine
Chlorophyll, the green pigment in plants, responsible for photosynthesis, should not affect your creatinine level. With a level at 1.6, you must consult a nephrologist to see if you can prevent further damage to your kidneys.

Dr. Dan E. Fisher answered:

How can I lower my creatine level?

Lots of water

Kidneys
If high Cr is due to intrinsic kidney disease, there is no way to realistically change it and no benefit to trying. Creatinine is not the problem, the broken kidney is the problem. If you lose a lot of muscle mass your creatinine will drop and you may drink a lot of water but these do not fix the kidney.
