Hi, thanks for the query to H.C.M.
Anti hypertensive drugs are prescribed to you, & you are taking these drugs from many years.
Those who have hypertension from many years ( as in your case) they are prone to kidney diseases, hence don't blame any antibiotics as you might have taken these not more than 7 days.
Serum creatinine level is normally 1.09g/cm2.
Let's note down that serum creatine after metabolism breakdown into creatinine which passes into urine from KIDNEY.
When there is any problem in kidneys at that time this creatinine don't pass into urine and so the level of "CRETININE" will increase in blood , that is parameter that how we adjudge that kidney(s) is working or not.
Serum creatinine level in your's caseis 3.7 g/
Hypertensive from many yrs.
These two conditions are not favorable for you.
So please get in blood examination for diabetes also beside lipids, creatines,
Consult a doctor and properly take a treatment.
Good luck. Dr. HET
