My name is Stav and I am from Essex. I am 37 years old and was diagnosed with IGA when I was 21. It was pretty stable and at stage 1 for a number of years however in July 14 my GFR went down to 57. In Jan 17 it is now 37. I am a firm believer that the stress I have put my body through the last few years has contributed to the deterioration. I have an appointment with the renal doctor end of Feb but my main question to you guys is has anyone with my kind of numbers significantly slowed down the process through a combination of diet and exercise? I think it's just hitting me now exactly the situation I will find myself in come a few years time and it is worrying to say the least. I am on 300mg Irbesartan but my bp is still 140/90. I'm just after a glimmer of hope that I can slow the GFR number down somewhat.
Thanks for reading guys. Take care and good luck to everybody. Stay strong 💪🏻
