Hi I am new to this site and arrived here after analysing my blood test results.
I am 71 next month.
I was extremely and unusually fatigued so the doctor arranged a number of blood tests. I telephoned for the results and was advised that all were normal. I then requested a copy and discovered that my GFR was 58 ml/min/1.73m2.
A urine dip stick test has since found repeat haematuria and proteinuria. I have no pain or urinary infection but twice the top normal level of pus cells. How concerned should I be? What should I do next?
I am left wondering if the 'normal' response was incompetence, or ageism!
