Often times, blood pressure meds, especially diuretics, will hurt your kidneys.
Not sure how to respond on here. Pressing all sorts of buttons. All okay now my meds have been changed and kidney function okay

Hm, not sure. Can you give any more information? What kind of medication are you taking? And why are you having kidney function tests?  I am on losartin. I do know it is working on my kidneys as well.  What has been important for me is to stay very well hydrated. But more info would be helpful to talk about this with you.
