Thank you for consulting HealthcareMagic!

As you have both high blood pressure and diabetes you must regularly keep a watch on your kidney health. Kidney is one of the major target organ for both high blood pressure and diabetes.

Your serum creatinine levels are above the normal range. So, you need continue to monitor the situation and also need to see a Nephrologist as eary as possible. Apart from creatinine levels, a check on microalbuminuria will give a better idea in your case.
