Blood test done. EGFR range low, creatinine range too high. How to control these levels?

Hello, i m having problems with my blood test , may i ask some questions about the numbers i received ? Firstly, my eGFR range was 64.77, which my doc said is a bit low and i also had a creatinine range of 115 mkmol/l, which was too high.. Could you please give me some overview what might be wrong and what should be done ? Thanks in advance, Matis.

The values that you are quoting are related to your kidney function. EGFR stands for estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate. This represents the rate at which your kidney is filtering the blood of its impurities. It should be above 90. Creatinine is a product that the kidney normally excretes and the value should be less than 70 mmol/l. Your lab test results mean that your renal function is slightly reduced. Please consult a nephrologist for proper evaluation of the cause for the deranged values and further management.

Wishing you well.
