Hi, I've just turned 67 and had no idea I was suffering from CKD until about 3 days ago.
My e-GFR is 58 and Creatinine at 1.42. I'm also anaemic and take medication (the anaemia is not too serious and I take iron tabs). My main gripe is that with every full FBC (taken for my anaemia) over the past 3 FBCs, my GP had not informed me of the decrease in my GFR! (23 Feb 2017 = 83, 13 July 2017 = 65, 14 December 2017 = 51), an overall drop of 32. I have an appointment on 18 Jan 2018 to determine the level. I pray to God that it doesn't drop further and, indeed, increase. I read that the 2 main culprits for CKD are diabetes and a high BP. I've researched diabetes and don't have any of the symptoms. I hope to come to terms with my condition ( which has no cure). My GP indicated he would arrange an appointment with a nephrologist going forward. My heart goes out to all those who have this condition - let's try and be strong and, above all, pray, have hope and faith.
