Hi, I am a 59 years old male, around 72kg and 173cm.

I have hypertension for about 2 years and is on medication. I have been doing health checkups for the past two years and my kidney profile seems to have deteriorated. Below attached is my kidney profile and I have some questions about it and I would be grateful if anyone can clarify my doubts - 1. What is the severity of my kidney based on the creatinine (1.54 as of 08/09) levels (eg stage of kidney disease etc) ? 2. Are there any medications I can take to improve my kidney profile or what type of diet should I be following to stop it from worsening?

Thank you!
