When I had labs drawn last month my creatinine was

When I had labs drawn last month my creatinine was 1.24. My doctor is rechecking it the end of this month. My urine has a strange odor to it and I don't really know how to describe it. My BP tonight at home was 167/ 78. My BP was high when I first got into the exam room on my last visit, but after sitting there and relaxing it was back in the normal range when retaken. I know that creatinine is a measure of kidney function. I have not had a problem with kidneys before. My A1C was 6.8, which is the highest it has ever been. Medications I take:
Cymbalta 90mg daily, (was on 120 mg) depression and pain
Doxcycline i 50mg daily rosacea
Pantoprazole 40mg daily (I take 1/2 tab or 20 mg)
Lisinopril 5mg daily
ASA 80 mg daily
Folic Acid, Vitamin B6, Vit B12
Vitamin D 1000mg i daily
Fish Oil
Cardiotab Multivitamin daily
I go to an exercise class 3X a week. (Started in November)
Here is the bad part. I'm 5'6" and weigh 215 lbs.
So, other than my weight, what do you think is going on here?
