1. Your creatinine is high, do you have kidney disease?....Creatinine levels increase with impaired kidney function. When left uncontrolled, diabetes can cause kidney disease. People with diabetes should be tested yearly for protein in the urine, blood creatinine and estimated glomerular filtration rate. I urge you to see your doctor to discuss these tests your concerns about kidney disease.
2. Does cp cause elevated creatinine?....I could find no source that shows a connection between these two, but I do know that if you have diabetes and an elevated creatinine, this is something that needs to be followed up with your doctor.
I have 3 concerns about your question. First is that you have experienced low blood sugar reactions and that you threat them with candy. Some candies are good treatmens for low blood sugar and others are not. Second, you don't want to go on insulin because of your irregular meal schedule yet your fasting is 196-224.
Your sugars are not in a safe place to prevent or control complications of diabetes. It is important to have your blood sugars in a target range (usually 70-130 fasting) and an A1c of less than 7%. Your current treatment is not working to meet these goals. Please get more information about other treatment options including pills, non-insulin shots and insulin. By the way, insulin can be adjusted to mealtimes much easier that most pills.
Lastly, I am concerned about the protein in your diet. It is recommended that people with decreased kidney function cut down on protein (ex. egg white) intake.
Please see your doctor for a kidney eval and ask to be referred to a dietitian and a certified diabetes educator. All these resources with help you with your health concerns, med choices and provide you with info and support to manage your diabetes and prevent or slow down development of diabetes complication. Good luck.
