How do you know your Creatinine levels? The creatinine blood test is used along with a BUN (blood urea nitrogen) test to assess kidney function. I'm assuming your physician provided this information. Why haven't you asked her/him for their opinion?

Either way, abnormal creatinine may be indicative of a kidney dysfunction. Some signs and symptoms of kidney dysfunction include:

    * Fatigue, lack of concentration, poor appetite, or trouble sleeping
    * Swelling or puffiness, particularly around the eyes or in the face, wrists, abdomen, thighs or ankles
    * Urine that is foamy, bloody, or coffee-colored
    * A decrease in the amount of urine
    * Problems urinating, such as a burning feeling or abnormal discharge during urination, or a change in the frequency of urination, especially at night
    * Mid-back pain (flank), below the ribs, near where the kidneys are located
    * High blood pressure

If your lymph nodes are tender, it is very likely your body is fighting an infection of some sort. I'd guess you might have a kidney infection... Though it's possible that they're unrelated. It could be that  you've got some sort of virus/bacterial infection and diabetes. See your doctor and voice your concerns. They'll be able to ask the appropriate questions and run more tests.
