Kidney related ?'s: A high creatinine in the urine while dehydrated is not unusual, but your husband as a diabetic should seen his nephrologist , as renal (kidney) decompensation is a serious problem requiring constant monitoring in diabetic patients especially.

Agree with Dr. B: It is important for your husband to consult a nephrologist to safe guard his kidney function. Even if dehydration has affected the creatinine and albumin levels, it is important to maintain good control of his blood sugar. Wish you and your husband good health!
