Hi all. Apologies in advance for the long post. I am a 30 year old female!
I had tests Nov, Dec, Jan and Feb all showed reduced kidney function with a gfr decreasing (59,55,54) GP didn't know cause as everything else was fine so referred me to nephrologist.
I did some research. Cut out red meat, eat less protein more plant based meals (son is veggie so this has been easier)
Had tests in May for appt. Went today and well I feel completely palmed off, but also like I've let myself down by not advocating for myself more after months of stress and worry leading up to this. So he basically said my gfr had gone up to 65. He went through all my previous bloods and I saw all the red ones (abnormals) but tbh I didn't know what any of it meant. All I know is that he said most of it had returned to normal he just said my red blood cells we abnormal but not enough to worry about. He said that on my ultrasound my kidneys were slightly different sizes but that was probably the incompetence of the ultrasound technician rather than truth. He said my vit d has been low on every test but he doesn't want to treat it. And lastly he said no protein or blood in urine so because of that all is right and well with me, see you later! 🤦♀️
Dont get me wrong i am pleased that after these months of being worried and stressed that I am out of any danger zone and things have improved. But I don't feel that I should leave it at that and go on my merry way after all of these bad results. Also everything I have read states that a gfr this low for my age does not bode well, whether its increased or not, it still doesn't seem to be anywhere near where it should be?? The most I could convince him to do was retest in 6 months. Am I overreacting?? I just need some reassurance, harsh truth I don't know. Advice would be great!
