Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the query

From the history and the treatment you are on it looks like you have an established kidney disease.
There is no ways by which you can reduce creatinine however you can only aim at retarding the progression of the kidney disease and also maintian whatever function is remaining. This is how you should go about it

1. Angiotensin receptor blockers should be added. This is the only known method of reducing disease progression. You are currently not on it, please speak to your doctor in your next visit
2. Probiotics like Nitrophage forte or Lobun is known to reduce blood urea nitrogen.
3. strict control of hypertension
4. strict salt restricted diet
5. avoiding urinary tract infection

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me
