HI Ted,

The tests seems to be normal for your age.

Only Creatinine is slightly above the range but for your age it should be OK.Ideally GFR (glomerular filtration rate) should be estimated which will give the exact status of the kidney function.

But it should not be very far away from the creatinine levels, as it also gives a fair accurate estimation of kidney function.
As of now there is nothing alarming in these results.

You can discuss these points with your doctor on your visit.
