Hi Panda,

The normal reference range for Creatinine (female) is 0.6 - 1.1 mg/dL so your kidneys are still doing fine.

Diabetes and high blood pressure are two of the leading causes of kidney disease.  If you have diabetes, you can reduce your risk of kidney damage by managing your blood sugar levels.  If you have high blood pressure, you can help protect your kidneys by getting your blood pressure to a healthy level.  Drink plenty of water to avoid kidney stones.
For diet, control the amount of protein and phosphorus (and sodium) you eat.
