Kitchen faucet


We have a single stage faucet handle in our kitchen sink. Lately we are experiencing greater low pressure on the hot water side. We have to let it run for several minutes before it is as hot as we need it to be. The water heater is only two years old. All other areas when using hot water upstair
baths and down stairs bathroom it is normal pressure and water heats up in a normal time. Please any suggestions "In the cold in Omaha."
Thanks for the quit comeback. I live in the area of 138th and W. Center Rd. And, the faucet type is a Price/Pfister Series 532

A couple things to check would be the pressure to the faucet and pressure out of the faucet.
Id shut off the hot water supply under the sink and remove the water line from the bottem of faucet itself and hold the end down into an empty bucket.
Then id turn the valve back on and see how much pressure you have,if you have plenty of pressure there id shut the valve back off and start looking at the faucet.
If you have low pressure coming from the hose Id shut off your water at the meter in your basement and replace the valve under your sink.
Is it a single or double handle faucet?
