Management of a diabetic patient with high creatinine
level needs proper evaluation preferably by an endocrinologist
or a nephrologist
or a general physician. A high creatinine value in a diabetic indicates involvement of the kidneys because of longstanding diabetes
, but it may not be the case always. It can be elevated in a number of other conditions like urinary tract
infections, obstruction to passage of urine, kidney stones, etc. which needs to be evaluated. Ask your physician about vaccinations and need for dialysis for your uncle as he might in the long run end up with dialysis when the kidney function declines further. wishing your uncle good health
