In brief: Kidney involvement

Not that uncommonfor a hypertensive to need more than 1, 2 or 3 medications to control bp.
Agree to certainly have him investigate the creatanine issue.

In brief: Hypertension

I have several questions.
Is his BP worse now than it was 6 months ago? Is he taking more than 4 BP meds? Does he have an increasing creatinine? If the answer is yes, you should see a nephrologist (n) to make sure he is on maximum doses of his BP meds. If he is, causes for uncontrolled hbp such as a renal artery stenosis or conn's syndrome, need to ruled out. Ask your h's doctor to refer him.
