Welcome to icliniq.com.
As I understand, you are having hypertension for past 15 years, apparently under control at present. Many a time, hypertension can remain undetected, without symptoms for long. So we may not know the exact duration of the disease in many patients. You have hypertension for a minimum of 15 years. It is not mentioned about the status of control in initial years. I hope that it was controlled. Looking at your results, this is most likely to be hypertensive kidney disease. However, we have to rule out precipitating or complicating factors like recent intake of painkillers, obstruction of urinary tract like prostate enlargement (normal PSA- prostate-specific antigen need not rule it out), recent infection, etc., many of these factors, if treated, may to some extent reverse kidney failure which you have. I suggest you have an ultrasound abdomen and urine routine.
