Brief Answer:
Your father has Diabetic Nephropathy

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query ,

Based on the facts and relevant reports that you have uploaded your father seems to have Diabetic Nephropathy which is known complication of long standing Diabetes.

However though his EGFR and Protein creatinine ratio are alarming Chronic Kidney Paranchymal disease his serum creatinine levels are reasonably within acceptable range considering his Diabetes since may years .

In view of his age being 77 years I would prefer to treat him on the lines as he is being treated now and will not go for Kidney biopsy which will not help us more as far as treatment is concerned .

Continue the treatment he is being suggested now and monitor his diabetes and renal function at frequent intervals by doing relevant blood tests .

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
