Hello, Im 41 year old male, father of 7. Last June, I had routine labs done with my PCP and my GFR at that time was 66, Creatinine 1.34 BUN/CREATININE RATIO 9, BUN 12. At that time, I experienced no symptoms. I do workout frequently and have an above average muscular build. I also supplement with Creatine, Protein powder, BCAA’s, etc. My PCP assured my that my slightly “elevated” Creatinine levels were consistent with my build.
Fast foward to approximately 4 weeks ago. Labs redone. GFR down to 48, Creatinine 1.6, BUN 16 and BUNCR 10. Other than working out, taking my normal regimen of supplements nothing else has changed up until now. I now have developed a very dry mouth (constantly) urge to urinate is in full force and I get dizzy/lightheaded easily? Also lots of bubbles in my urine.
I went back in today, off all supplements, done approximately 11 lbs, been on a primarily plant based diet for one week and have not been to the gym for 2 weeks.
Can anyone shed some light here on what might be going on? Im very concerned about the drastic change in numbers but could it be just due to my supplements and daily workout routine? HELP!! Thank you so much!
