What does a 1.3 creatine level mean?
Since you sent this question from the Kidney Disease page I assume you understand that it has something to do with the kidneys. In fact it is used to measure of your kidney function. In order to interpret it correctly it is put into a formula called the MDRD GFR Calculator. The calculator for the formula is available on the National Kidney Foundation website. It will require you to input your age, race and gender. The higher the creatinine, the worse the kidney function.
