What could be the cause of increased creatinine levels in a diabetic ?

Hi, Age: 59 Creatinine : 1.4 My in law has undergone an Angioplasty last year. He was admitted to hospital last week due to cough and kapha. he has been asked to nebulize 3 times a day. There we came to know his creatinine levels are high. When admitted it was 1.9 it has reduced now to 1.4. He is diabetic and does not follow any food diet. He takes insulin 30-0-12 per day. KFT has been done and has been advised again. Is there any problem in his kidney?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

Normal Creatinine levels is between 0.5 to 1.5 mg/dl. Elevated creatinine levels are concerning and related to multiple clinical condition such as infection, diabetes, hydration and other renal disorder. I presume the elevation was secondary to his recent lung infection.

Any way, the current creatinine value are normal. So there is no problem in his kidney.

I suggest you to keep his / her blood sugars in limits to avoid any future complications including renal disease.

I understand you are concerned and I hope this answer is reassuring.

All the Best
