Well I got my blood test back and now I'm even more confused. I've been experiencing bone and joint pain, shortness of breath, tiredness, and swelling in face, hands and feet. I thought it was due to my stage 3 CKD. Test results show my creatinine has improved to 1.25 with my BUN at 1. This is the best it has ever been.My cholesterol was amazing at 82. It's never been that low. It was 221. The doctor said my parathyroid hormone level was really more than you would expect for this degree of renal insufficiency. Especially since my phosphorus level is now normal too. He ran blood work to look at inflammatory arthritic conditions and found that i don't have lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, but my C-reative protein which is an inflammatory marker is elevated and could be elevated in a number of inflammatory conditions. My vitamin D is low as usual.
I'm just confused as to how could I feel so bad and have such good creatinine levels? They've never been this good. Doctor wants me to call and talk to him about having a parathyroid scan and seeing up another appointment to see another nephrologist since mine retired. I'm open to suggestions to why the parathyroid is high with the renal insufficiency being so much better. I still hurt everywhere and get extremely tired all the time.
