Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

You need to have a good control of your diabetes, hypertension and Cholesterol

The high creatinine is likely due to kidney damage caused by your chronic illnesses

A good control of these will help in settling the creatinine back to normal

You should have your GFR monitored as well

If there are proteins in the urine then you should take an ACE inhibitor like Lisinopril to help settle the problem
