Hello, my lupus friends!
I need your help. I received blood test results today. My GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) fell drastically over the last 4 months from 79 to 68. Both numbers are within the range for stage 2 kidney damage. But if it falls that much over the next 4 months, I will be in stage 3. I'm only 53. Is this something I need to panic about?? I kinda already have! My Rheumatologist ordered the test, but he NEVER calls with results or directions. He just waits til the next appointment 6 months from now to check them!
If I understand correctly, this sort of thing is related to lupus, right? I'm crying on the inside and some is leaking out right now. So sorry to unleash on everyone here.
