He will examine you thoroughly and after doing the needful test decide on your treatment. But also follow a healthy lifestyle, regular and timely eating, regular sleep, yoga should be done.

Dear Pradip, as per my understanding you are suffering from hypertension and you are under a cardiologist for its treatment. Hypertension affects other organs of our body like kidney, heart, and others. Your creatinine can be high due to this.But you can get yourself re-evaluated By a cardiologist and nephrologist to have a clear understanding of your current symptoms.But along with medical line of treatment life style modifications is a must. Salt restricted diet, regular excercises or yoga, to stop smoking , recreational activities to relax and relieve anxiety, weight management and regular follow up with doctors is a must.Consult a cardiologist and nephrologist.
