This is Dr. David

creatinine of 1.27 is slightly elevated

and can be from you not drinking enough water prior to the blood test.

diabetes can cause weakness of your kidneys.

make sure you drink more water and fluids. if you drink more water, I bet your creatinine levels will go back down.

it sounds like you are getting treatment for hepatitis
