Hello. Creatinine is marginally high. The reason for water restrictions is not kidney functions but the heart problems. A very less functional heart cannot pump with more force and bp will be a problem. So fluid restrictions. To some extent less water content condition will also sometimes increase creat like severe dehydration or vomiting. As of now follow the guidelines given by your cardiologist.
