Diabetes, congestive heart failure, and Chronic Kidney Disease?

Are all symptoms related? How about blood test results? Does anybody know what a normal Creatinine is? Hubby suffers with all 3. Doc is a morone.. Just can't seem to get any conclusive answers. Can anybody help me???

To answer your question, YES they can all be interrelated. Diabetes causes an increased level of blood sugar. The blood sugar causes changes in the blood vessels everywhere in the body. Changes include hardening of the arteries, which may lead to hypertension (high blood pressure). High blood pressure may cause a strain in your heart which can lead to CHF or Congestive Heart Failure. Poor blood supply to the heart can also lead to CHF.

Chronic Kidney Disease can be a complication of diabetes. Not only the sugar attacks the vessels, but underlying hypertension can cause further damage in the blood supply, decreasing kidney blood flow and function.

Creatinine is a test of renal(kidney) function. Depends on the age/sex/laboratory reference values its usually up to 0-5- 1.4. Higher values mean a more decreased kidney function.

Diabetes may be the main factor for your husbands' problems.
He may also have some underlying disease that you havent mentioned, but more or less diabetes can cause heart failure and kidney failure.

Hope this helps. Hope your husband gets well. Im sure the doctors are doing the best that they can.
the normal creatinine level is 1.7 untill 1.9 and kidney failure level above 4
Diabetes disease may be the cause of other diseases, this means that Diabetes is one of the mostly considered risk factors for heart diseases as CHF.
creatitnin normaly is excreated from kindnays.So when kidney has some problems creatitnin eleveates in blood.for example
in chronic kidney disease.Its important to control creatinin levels.
consult with your doc.
