Good morning, I’m a 43 year old female and am awaiting for my blood results taken to try and understand why my GFR has fallen from 73 which it was this time last year. It had dropped to 56 in July and now it’s 53. These are the only numbers I have. My urine isn’t showing any protein at the moment. As part of my blood tests my Dr has done a test checking for protein levels which has scared the life out of me after what I’ve read about it.
I am genuinely petrified. I’m a single mom with 2 young teenage daughters and I feel like I’m going to hear the worst news next week when I get the results. I don’t know if I’ll be able to call the Drs for the results I’m that scared. I can’t stop feeling sick. Does anybody have any advice or similar experiences at all?
Many thanks for reading.
