Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
I can understand your concern.
You have mildly reduced kidney function.But if the risk is less if you do not have any abnormal urinary test or genetic predisposion to kidney disease.
The treatment would be observation, control of blood pressure and risk factors.
Control your lipid profile.Maintain a healthy life.
Do consult your nephrologist and take his opinion if you have any problems.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing you a healthy life.
Have a nice day.
