Hi, I've accidentally came to know that my kidney functions is below the normal level 4 years ago. My eGFR fluctuates between 68 to 80 depending on when I take the test if I am dehydrated or not. My potassium level as well is between 4.3 and some time it goes up to 5.5. I have gout which is between 420 to 470 again depending on the test time. The doctor said nothing to worry about just drink 3 litre of water per day and reduce your protein intake and that's it. I am 32 year old. I am trying to eat healthy I guess. Regarding the cause, the doctor said it can be because an infection or something happen to be when I was kid because all the tests are fine. My first question, do I have to worry? Second, is it ok if I take the uric acid fluch supplements to reduce the uric acid. Note that even the gout was discovered accidentally during a check up I was doing. I did not suffer from any gout pain.
eGFR is between 70 and 80 and no protein... - Early CKD Support
