In brief: Renal Insufficiency

Discuss this with her and pcp.
This is consistent with renal insufficiency or early renal failure. If pcp is comfortable managing this, is not a problem as long as your mom follow instructions and take medications (i.e. For blood pressure) as indicated and avoid things like high protein in diet. Other conditions (i.e. Diabetes) should be well controlled. She can progress but hard to predict.
