About 5 weeks ago, I was diagnosed with early stages of CKD and High Cholestrol of 7.2. Bit of a shock really to say the least, especially on top of the Fibromyalgia and other medical issues I have. I had to have a follow up blood and urine test this week. Pleased to say that I have lost a stone in weight; boy was that hard; and I need to keep going. Also my cholesterol has come down to 4.6. So really pleased with that. Blood ok, but protein in urine still high, which has to be monitored. They also did a Bence Jones Test which I am awaiting the results for. Could not understand this and do not know much about this one. Did have a quick google and it frightened the life out of me. Still will have to wait and see. On holiday for a week's break with hubby tomorrow, so perhaps find out when I get back. If anyone can enlighten me, would be grateful.
