Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for your query.

Your Diabetes based on the above given values is quite controlled.

You need to preferably maintain the HbA1c level below 7 %.

You have comorbid illness that has caused damage to your kidney.

Now you have Chronic kidney disease due to Diabetes and Hypertension( Diabetic and Hypertensive Nephropathy).

Serum creatinine levels are very high.

This is causing you pedal edema(Leg swelling) and raise in the blood pressure.

You need to follow.

1. Tight control of blood sugar.

2. Low salt and protein intake.

3. Control of hypertension

4. Dialysis

Consult a Nephrologist for the treatment of CKD.

Hope the answer helps you.
Pleased to answer other queries.

I now that the answer is well on the predictable lines and not surprising. But, iwa asking for specific advice on HT. Can you not suggest a simple combination of of a fewer no of drugs rather than the long I am prescribed. long list i am prescribed. Further, why new generation angiostein receptors hhave nt been recommended why/ how ystolic BP could be reduced further?

Unlike other patient you can not be prescribed drugs because you have a compromised renal status.

You may need dose adjustment in many antihypertensives.

Without knowing the Creatinine clearance value prescribing overdose may harm your kidneys.

In this forum we can make only recommendations and prescribing drugs are against the policy.

It would be better for you to consult a nephrologist and get all your dose adjusted.
