I’ve been type 2 for a long time, over ten years or so. I’ll be 70 soon.
I’m a vet, so yearly I go to the local VA hospital.(Just a side note, if you’re an American Viet Nam Vet and you’re type 2 you’re entitled to a pension. I didn’t know it for a long time, so I like to let other vets know.)
The VA nurse I see, who is great, mentioned concern about my rising createnine. The readings have been: Jan 2013 .68, Sep 2013 1.07, Nov 2014 1.2 , Jan 2017 1.18, July 2017 1.41
My internist has added glipizde 5 mg ½ twice a day to break down a1c. Will retest createnine in August, but I’m wondering how concerned I should be, or if there’s anything I should do in the meantime. I’m fortunate in that I have good health insurance. If the createnine is still rising, I’ve got the name of a recommended nephrologist in my area. Blood pressure has been fine. I’m on a bunch of medication.
Any advice would be appreciated.
