Hello !

What is your weight ? Age ?

Did you get a # for eGFR?

The creatinine level of 1.14 can be normal range still for many people ..

You having high blood pressure can be due to kidney function ..

If you had a jump I'm the creatinine level from past then you may have some reason for concern..

If urinalysis has been found to have abnormal protein or blood present then that may be reason for concern

It seems that referral to nephrologist has more to it than just serum creatinine of 1.14 though ( not that bad at all...)

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

I will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback Thank you and Best Regards

Dr. Bray
