General & Family Physician 's  Response
Your s. creatinine has been progressively going up suggesting deterioration of kidney function. This type of  damage is usually irreversible. As far as medicines are concerned ,they are perfectly all right and there is nothing to add in this treatment.
I would simply like to guide you on general lines so as to keep you aware of every thing.
To slow down further deterioration....
....Your  blood sugar needs to have impeccable control (HbA1c
.... Your blood pressure should be controlled to levels below 120/80 mmHg. 
....You are already on BENACE,which is an ACE INHIBITOR and this helps in slowing down the deterioration of kidney functions in a diabetic.
...Avoid routine pain killers.
..Don't take more than 4-5 gms of salt per day.
...Restriction of proteins to be observed and to be taken as advised by the doctor and is generally between .6 to .8 gms/ kg/ day.
....Quit alcohol and smoking,if any.
Always keep your blood sugar levels and blood pressure in meticulous control.
I hope it helps.
