My wife’s test showed her Creatinine at 1.62 and her GFR at 30. Should we be concerned with these readings? Is these putting her close to dialysis?

This information would suggest Stage 3 chronic kidney disease (CKD) if these results have been present for at least 3 months.  This does not suggest a need for dialysis at the present time.  I suggest that you review these findings with your wife’s physician.
