I have stage 4 kidney failure, I am 30 years old.
5 yrs ago my gfr was 50(creatinine 1.7),
3 years ago my gfr was 39(creatinine 2.2) but has decreased to 28 now(creatinine 2.85)
My kidney failure is the result of my hyperactive immune system.. Lupus nephritis is the name of the kidney disease.
Is this decline in gfr normal?
I don't know the reason of the decline. I have nephrologist who says my kidney failure is stable. I am concerned that the decline is happening so fast. Has this happened to anyone else?
In the initial stages, I was on autoimmune suppressive drugs but from 3 years, my nephrologist has only prescribed me blood pressure medications and diuretics.
He never asked me to change my diet habits. On most days, I consume white meat in the form of chicken. Egg is my other favourite diet.
Am I doing right?
My nephrologist seem not much concerned.
