My father is 96 and his cystatin c is 1.7 his creatinine is 1.6 so how do I make sense of this?

I suggest that you discuss these results with the physician who is caring for your father.  These tests suggest there may be some mild kidney disease but I cannot provide a specific diagnosis based on the information that you present.
