I believe you'd be best served by also being followed by a nephrologist. You may be placed on an ACE inhibitor like lisinopril (or an ARB) to protect the kidneys from further damage but these meds may further raise your BUN&creatinine and will need careful titrating of the dose. The same applies to diuretics&some heart drugs Your blood pressure has to be well controlled to protect your kidneys.
