2 years after having a blood test my GP told me I had CKD stage 3 which he told me was not a big deal. He told me that I may not get any worse and that I was to have 6 monthly blood tests. He didn't give me any idea what symptoms to look out for so I was left to do research of my own on the Internet. I'm a little nonplussed as to why I have this. I don't smoke, have remarkably low blood pressure, I rarely drink alcohol as it makes me feel ill and I eat pretty healthily, although I do have a sweet tooth! I did undergo a course of accutane 6 or 7 years ago and I now wonder whether this has 'dried' my kidneys out. I have since read a lot of postings from people who attribute this drug to a whole host of health conditions.
