Ok so you have chronic kidney disease.

Chronic kidney disease is treated by following measures:

1. Please control your blood pressure around 130/80 or below.

2. Please take an ACE inhibitor like lisinopril to prevent protein leakage in the urine and protect kidney function.

3. Please control LDL cholesterol below 100 mg/dl

4. Treat your diabetes well if present.

5. Please maintain a good fluid balance --adjust intake with fluid loss.

6. Diet plays a vital role.
