I was diagnosed 6 years ago with Stage 3 CKD. They gave me a pill and let it be managed by my gp. I was taken off of that pill in May due to blood pressure issues. I pursued it myself with my gp to replace the pill and she said they didn't know I had CKD. I got an ultrasound and it shows cortex thinning, which I read means a worsening of CKD. I have many other symptoms of Stage 4, and I have not been well for almost a year. We adjusted all meds to mask the symptoms, but I'm worried about my new diagnosis when seeing nephrologist on Nov. 3.
Is CKD in Stage 4 by the time you have cortex thinning?
