I"m new here and feeling pretty terrified and looking for a little guidance. I had some blood and urine tests done back in May, and the urine test came back and showed very high levels of protein in my urine. Blood work was fine eGFR was at 113 & creatinine was 64 umol/L. Was sent for ultrasound and that came back saying slightly echogenic kidneys possibly to do medical renal disease. Have since had more blood and urine work done, still very high levels of protein in urine and eGFR now showing 100 & creatinine at 71 umol/L. All other blood work is good, no diabetes, no high blood pressure. No history of kidney disease in family. I am waiting for an appointment to see a nephrologist, but there doesn't seem to be any immediate rush. I feel like while I'm waiting around whatever is happening is just getting worse. Does anyone have any idea what is going on, or what I should be doing in the mean time to stay as healthy as possible? I usually run 5k every other day and I have had 1 doctor tell me not to do that anymore, while a different doctor laughed and said that he has never heard that be advised before and to continue running. (Should also say I have made sure not to do any exercise 48 hours prior to blood/urine tests). I'm so very confused. I am 29 years old, female. 5'7, 140 pounds. In decent shape. I have recently stopped taking my birth control as my partner and I were planning on having a baby in the next little while.. I guess I need to put that on hold at least for the time being.
Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated. This is a lovely little community that you have here
