How can elevated creatinine levels be controlled?

Q: I am a 56 years old male with a single kidney. My creatinine levels are increasing persistently. Is here any medicine to control it? At present my sugar level fasting is 114 mg/dl and after meals is 149 mg/dl.

A:Persistently increased creatinine level signifies underlying chronic kidney injury. It could result from long standing poorly controlled diabetes and hypertension among several causes. Hence, medications meant to control these potential causes help delay the progression of underlying kidney injury or the disease process. Also, depending upon the specific type or cause of kidney disease, some of medications can revert the disease process like "Nephritis" (characterised by increased inflammation of kidney's filtering cells). You should have your kidney function evaluated by your physician.
