Elevated Creatinine ,negative microalbuminuria - what could be the problem

Hi ,

My Father 64 yrs old , has elevated creatinine and Blood ureas value. Creatinine was 1.6 and Urea was 52 whent tested a week back (normal reference range in lab: creatinine : 0.7-1.3 , urea - 21-40) .A 24 hrs microalbumin showee 3.4mg/24hrs(lab normal range : less than 30mg/24hrs).

The elevation started from his heart attack(3 yrs back) when creatinine shot up to 1.6.He had a bypass surgery and creatinine settled to 0.8 in 6 months. Now its been another 2.5 yrs ,and creatinine has again elevated to 1.6 and Blood ureas to 52. (normal reference range in lab: creatinine : 0.7-1.3 , urea - 21-40)
.A ultra sound test was also done 8 month back and showed both kidneys are in normal shape and size,no calculus and my doc said things are normal.He is taking aspclopilet 75mg regularly for 2.5 yrs now and also taking repace 50mg and lanoxin 0.25. He is a diabetic for 15 yrs now and has no bp.
Is there any symptom of any chronic kidney disease ? what steps i need to take now , my fathers cardiologist says there is nothing to worry and there could be mild damage. In the absense of micro albuminuria , can kidney disease be there ? Also can the drugs my father take or the heart problem cause the elevation ?
