I was wrongly diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2012 and they removed my right kidney. I feel great,no issues, but I just did my lab test recently and my Creatinine is little high (1.18) , GFR is low (53). I am on Atkins diet since April (lots of protein and fat, little carbs) and not sure if this is what probably caused the out of range values. I really feel great with Atkins (lost weight), but little afraid that this could influence my only kidney. Any suggestions?
I am also fighting with increased cholesterol (296) , LDL (205), triglycerides (232), low HDL (48). For the first time now my red blood cell count increased (5.17), along with hemoglobin (16.1) and Hematocrit (47.9)....
Ah, so many little things that just make we worry !
BTW- anyone else with the same experience (wrongly diagnosed/ kidney removed/ and then the biopsy results benign)?!
