I am a 56 year old male. I was told that my creatinine level is 2.3 after my last HbA1c. I am type 2 diabetic. I am now on Atkins diet to reduce dramatically lower carbohydrates. What is the significance of increased creatinine level? What is considered as a critical level? Please explain so that I can get some sort of a deeper understanding. I have also increased drinking water. I do not smoke or drink. I am not using any drugs too. Thank you.
