I was told that I had 30% of my kidney function remaining. I am a 76 year old male stroke victim (05/13/2007). A recent blood test showed my Creatinine Serum was 1.44 mg/dl, which I also calculated at 37. I will see a doctor on June 2, do I need to worry? I am also a diabetic with a fib.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is very common in patients with high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes.  Any one of these diseases can be a cause for the CKD.  It is important that both your blood pressure and your diabetes be well controlled in order for your CKD to be properly managed.
