co-q10 to prevent kidneys damage on tenofovir

i was checking if there is anyway to prevent kidneys damage in cases like mine where kidenys cannot stand tenofovir, i don t have plans to add tenofovir for the moment but in any case i'd like to make sure i will be able to use it if ever needed.
this is what i have found,there are 3 antioxidants that help prevent kidneys damage:

co-q10, looks like the most potent since it has been used in patients with severe renal failure.Co Q10 for chronic renal failure

:
NAC acetyl cisteine, antioxidant already present in HR protocol
alpha-lipoic acid, antioxidant already present in HR protocol
L-carnitine, i don't know how this work on liver so i'd not suggest it

It seems I am doing right thing by taking coq10. My purpose is for blood pressure. L-carnitine exists naturally in human body and is biosynthesized by liver and kidney, so I guess it doesn't hurt and may relieve the function if liver and kidney are impaired. I used to take alpha-lipoic acid and l-carnitine, but stopped them recently.

HR protocol lowered creatinine from 1.14 to 1.03 in 2 weeks, creatinine clearance from 112ml/min to 118ml/min, creatinuria from 1.86g/24h to 1.76g/24h.
i also added 90mg daily co-q10 to HR protocol 3 days ago

my point is to reach the minimum normal level for creatinine 0.95 which was my baseline value before starting therapy so that if i need to add tenofovir or increase nitazoxanide it will stay at that low level

nomral range from creatinine is 0.9-1.2 but any increase from baseline value might mean kidneys damage, creatinine clearance is also needed because creatinine is different according to age and muscular mass so a bodybuilder has normal creatinine even at 1.2-1.3
