Hello aapdavis
Thank you for bring your question to dLife. Your Creatinine level is 1.3 and you are urinating frequently at night. You last HbA1c level is 6.7%. Even with this good glucose control, you are having kidney function issues as normal levels of creatinine in the blood are approximately 0.6 to 1.2 milligrams (mg) per deciliter (dL) in adult males and 0.5 to 1.1 milligrams per deciliter in adult females. You should be concerned and you should be evaluated by a nephrologist (Kidney Specialist). Read more about Diabetes and Kidney problems KIDNEYS.
