JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Hello

This is Dr. Bonilla. I understand your concerns.

The GFR and creatinine are abnormal. They indicated a slight degree of kidney dysfunction. HTN, medications and aging can have an impact in kidney dysfunction. For now regular checks done by your PCP are recommended.
