This post is a little old so I don't know if you found out anything by now.

I also have Quest Diagnostic test. Mine shows reference ranges and they will show if something is high or low. They also should have included a brochure that explains what the numbers mean. If they use the same reference ranges where you are, your numbers are all within the normal range. Most of your numbers are almost identical or very close to mine. The only significant difference I see, is alkaline phosphatase, which is usually a lot higher on my tests. Sometimes it's been too high and next year it's lower and drs pay no attention to it.

If you still have dull back pain and think it could be your kidneys you could take some cornsilk tea with is a natural antibiotic for the kidneys. A few cups of that a day won't hurt anything. Don't use corn silk off corn you get at grocery store because it's probably been sprayed with poison. Get it at a health food store. And drink more water. I think green tea might be good too and you can get that at a grocery store.

I do not know the ranges the Quest uses but your Creantine sounds high. My doc was concerned when mine spiked over 1.
