Default ??? Creatinine low??

Ok so got my blood work back-- whew thyroid is perfect Doctor also drew a CMP(Comp Metabolic Panel) and my creatinine level was low- a .51 (range is .60-1.4). My BUN/Creatinine ratio is fine with my BUN being right on the border an 8(range 8-25). Doctor didn't seem to concerned with these numbers-- could they be low from when I went DKA? OR is it something I should worry about? I go to the endo on 10/31 and will of course be taking the results with me, but I know there is LOTS of knowledge in this forum and I am curious... Y'all have a good day --

Forgot to add-- I am still super ubberly happy with everything else checking out perfect--

Low Creatinine seems to be connected with Diabetes. Mine was borderline on several blood draws. I remedied that with creatinine supps.

Control is with Diet modification, exercise, supps.

Doc told me low is good for diabetics. He also said that it usually runs low when you have been fasting for the blood test.
