I am a 24yr old female with (urinary) creatinine reading of 178.3 mg/dl but do not have readily available healthcare access and am wondering my potential issue(s) with this elevated level?

A urinary creatinine only tells you how concentrated your urine is. It is not an indicator of chronic kidney disease (CKD).  I am unable to make a specific diagnosis based only on a urinary creatinine.
