In brief: Dialysis

You father will need to start dialysis due to his kidney disease.
You father is still young enough to be considered for a kidney transplant (t). If he is lucky he may be able to get a kidney and pancreas transplant that would cure both his kidney disease and diabetes. If the absence of a t he will need to be on some sort of dialysis (d). While it a new life style many patients live well on d.

You ask if it were possible to bring you father's creatinine to normal from its level of 8.2 mg/dl. The answer is probably not, unless he has some obstruction to his urinary outflow tract. Ask your father's nephrologist for more information.

In brief: Kidney transplant.

The patient clearly has advanced kidney failure and needs dialysis.
In the long run, kidney transplantation would enable him to have a much more normal lifestyle than he could hope to achieve on dialysis.
