Wouldn't worry: That much. Watch alk. Phos. And if you drink alot cut back and i take it rest of liver enzymes were normal.

Stop worrying: Keep taking your high blood pressure medicine. This trivial elevation in creatinine is likely to be from the damage to your kidney arteries from before you started managing your hypertension. Stay compliant and it won't get worse. Low alk phos means nothing. Keep staying on top f your health -- it's a good thing.
