That is your kidney function number. I am also in the 40's. It's stage 3 kidney disease. A normal is around 90 or so give or take a little.  Here is a link you can look at that calculates your gfr.  http://www.davita.com/gfr-calculator/#app=266&9990-selectedIndex=1    I went ahead and calculated it for you to get your creatinine. Your at 1.2. You def need to get that bp under control that really high and will damage your kidney even more if not controlled.
