6 months ago I went to my GP as I was having dizzy spells. Dr said I had vertigo. I increasingly get heart palpitations and some dizzyness when I'm anxious as I suffer with anxiety but this was full blown constant vertigo for 8 days and felt rather unwell. Dr ran some blood tests, thyroid was fine, liver fine but kidney readings were below what he would expect for my age and to return in 6 months for a further blood test. I wasn't too worried as I thought maybe it was a one off due to an infection and will come back in 6 months... I then started to feel much better and the vertigo and nausea disappeared.
About a month ago my anxiety got to stage where I needed help, so.went back to my GP and was prescribed sertraline (SSRI anti depressant) for the first time in my life. The medication does seem to be helping a lkttle, my moods are no longer too low although still get anxious
Two weeks ago I gained access online to my medical records as we can now manage our appointments online. So I had a look at the test results from March... My GFR was 62. So I did some research and realised how close I am to CKD stage 3. Anyway last week has my next blood test a month early as this has scared me...not the news I wanted , my GFR is now 61.
Dr has asked me to take in a urine sample tomorrow
I am just really scared as I it's hihhly unlikely I am diabetic, blood results don't suggest anything else that it could be, my BMI is 24, my blood pressure within heathly range usually at most 120/80..
I am just scared and do not know what is going on .
I.must also add that in April this year I decided to go full vegetarian
