Kidney disease

Been having blood tests at doctors and on my recent visit was told that my kidneys were not what they should be.

Got a letter from latest blood test and figures showed [urea 9.8..creatinine 144 and eGFR 43,.

This it said would be called a mild stage of chronic kidney disease stage 3.

This it said could be linked to my hypertension.

I looked up what stage 3 symptoms were,and it certainly fits what has been occuring with myself..eg...shortness of breath,fatigue and slight pain in the back.

Does anyone else have,or in this stage of this problem...it said that seeing a dietition to get on the right coarse for eating the right things which will help things.

Comments welcome

Hi mestala, I also have CKD but unsure of the stage I only found out when my Doctor was retiring and I asked for a letter detailing all my medical problems (there are a few) I think it's due to my blood thinners.

Hi Mae

Blood tests should tell you at what stage CKD is,I've had 3 blood tests in about the last 6 weeks approx.The gp said they would keep an eye on the levels for my kidney/liver etc.Going to see gp in a couple of weeks to talk it over with him about what I can do to halt any deteriation of the kidneys.
