Diabetes Linked to Low Creatinine

Share this article:
Lower serum creatinine is a newly identified risk factor for type 2 diabetes, Japanese researchers concluded.

They studied 8,570 nondiabetic Japanese men aged 40-55 years at study entry. During a four-year follow-up period, type 2 diabetes developed in 877 subjects.

Those with serum creatinine levels between 0.40 and 0.60 mg/dL had a nearly twofold higher risk than subjects whose levels were between 0.71 and 0.80 mg/dL, according to a report in Diabetes Care (2009;32:424-426).
