My annual blood test for CKD3a status, a condition I seem to have had, occasionally dipping out of (ie above the 60 mark) for 12 years, has leapt from 55 last year to 63 this year. It's been under 60 for 8 years.
So, wondering why, and if this means I have improved to CKD2? All I have done this last year is to escalate my dislike of eating meat, and stop salting my food, except for fish and chips night. Creatinine is 78 and was 89 (above reference) last year. Serum urea was down from 5.8 to 5.1.
I thought living with CKD was a matter of managing decline? I am 70 now, so 58 when it first showed up.
Comments welcome, and thank you.
