Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Since your creatinine is high and GFR is low, possibility of hypertension due to renal damage is high.
Altered creatinine and GFR suggest renal (kidney) damage.
And kidney is having important role in regulation of blood pressure.
So kidney damage can cause high blood pressure.
So better to consult kidney doctor and start appropriate treatment to reduce creatinine level.
Once this is normalise, your blood pressure will also come to normal.
Hope I have solved your query.
Wish you good health. Thanks.
