Just got my first lab results back after being diagnosed with ckd. My first gfr was 62 but was told i'am stage 3. Maybe because i'am diabetic with heart disease. Just thought any thing above 60 was stage 2. Anyway doctor said he wants me to get blood work every month now. Ive been pretty strict this month on my diet. Cut out salt and made alot of dishes from Devita's website. Gfr came back today at 57. Got hit for a 5 point drop. Can anybody tell me if that's normal? At this rate, my gfr will be at 27 in six months. Thanks in advance for any insight.
