In brief: Yes

Elevated creatinine level could mean renal insufficiency, with or without crp.

Such a high level of creatinine is quite qorrisome. If it has happened suddenly it suggests acute renal failure. The high CRP indicates a systemic inflammatory process that may relate to the kidney problem. Many conditions and diseases can cause high CRP and Cr. Many are treatable and even reversible if caught early enough. Chronic renal failure can also have a high Cr.

In brief: Yes and no

Creatinine = 5 suggests fairly advanced kidney insufficiency.
CRP is a marker or measure of inflammation (many things including insuffisance reinale can cause that); a level of 77 is high suggesting active inflammation.
