What does it mean with creatinine 8.7 in FSGS?

Creatinine is the metabolic product of muscle. It is often used as an indicator of kidney function. If the creatinine level is higher than the normal level of 0.5-1.3mg/dl, the kidney function may have declined. Creatinine 8.7 is far more than the normal level. FSGS may have already developed into kidney failure with creatinine 8.7.

How long can you live?

Though creatinine is that high, how long can you live do not only depend on the creatinine level. Many other factors should also be taken into consideration, such as the ages, the illness condition, and the treatment. While among these factors, the treatment is the most important one.
