Just left Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center with my dad. He received his initial 2 shots of Degarelix 28 days ago and was given 1 shot of Lupron today. However, we were just called to bring him back because his potassium levels are too high. Also, although his PSA dropped from 6.04 to 1.6, his testosterone levels remain exactly the same as 28 days ago. Anyway, please see the test results below and let me know the your thoughts:

[>60 mL/min/1.73m2]The CKD-EPI equation was used to calculate the estimated GFR, and is not adjusted for extreme body surface area. The CKD-EPI equation has not been validated for children less than 18 years, pregnant women, ethnic groups other than Caucasians or African Americans, or the elderly. Estimated GFR is valid only in steady state conditions. Ref: Levey AS, Stevens LA et al. A new Equation to Estimate Glomerular Filtration Rate. Ann Intern Med. 2009; 150:604-612.
