Hi, you need to attach enough attention and importance on this problem, because slowly increasing of his creatinine level means his kidneys have been severely damaged. If no treatment is given to stop illness progression, he will finally needs to do dialysis or kidney transplant. Diabetes is the top 1 cause of kidney failure around the world, so please ask him to control his blood sugar in normal range. This will help to slow down illness progression.

Creatinine is a waste product in our body. it is a substance with small molecular weight, so it can pass through kidney freely. As long as our kidneys work normally, creatinine can be removed out of the body timely. For your husband, his creatinine can not be removed, which means his kidney function has been impaired. Besides, according to clinical studies, serum creatinine level goes up when about a half of kidney function is impaired. Your husband’s creatinine level is slowly increasing 2013, which has been a long time, so I am afraid his kidneys have been severely damaged.

Diabetes is marked by persistent high blood sugar. When there is high blood sugar level, our kidneys will work hardly to remove excess glucose out of the body through urine. Long-term high workload is very harmful for kidney. That is why people with years of Diabetes run high risk for kidney problem.
