Hi, I don't have a lot of information on your specific situation since you are a transplant recipient so all I can respond to is an example from my labs. The lab doing my most recent labs (early June) show the range for Creatinine to be between .7 and 1.3. If it's the same for a transplant recipient like yourself, then your number of 1.23 is within the normal range.

I hope that helps you to feel some comfort. What did your doctor tell you when you received the lab results?


He said that everything is ok just that I had protein in the urine and prescribe me a new blood pressure med that I'm kind of worried about because it tends to raise the potassium levels which is bad at the stage 3 ckd but I'm gonna go see my old doctor to see wat he says hopefully is gd


I've gone through doctors more in the last year than I ever thought I would in my entire life (pre-CKD). I'm trying to get a "team" together that works for me without holding back any information and that work together so I don't get conflicting advice. I have a new PCP that is good and tomorrow I see a new nephrologist for the first time. I've got a set of questions based on my situation that hopefully will get answers that show me that both are working WITH me and not each having what I find are contradictions.

To some degree, I have to rely on their training and experience but when it comes to treatment, especially medications, I expect them to be on the same page. The PCP made some changes to my meds and told me to discuss it with the nephrologist and follow those instructions.

I also scheduled a follow-up appointment with the renal dietitian for next week and if I can have everyone I see on the same page with the same goals I can put myself at ease and deal with the disease without the stress of worrying about the conflicts.
