I’m freaking out right now. My bloodwork from a few months ago was said to have been “normal” when my doc called with results.
After further investigation I just saw that my creatinine was .92 (normal range), BUN was 13 (normal range). But my potassium was 5.5 and my gfr was 84.
I’m terrified I have the beginnings of CKD. Some websites say gfr over 60 is fine and need not be investigated, some say it’s stage 2 CKD. I don’t know what to do. I’ve spent a fortune on medical bills this year and I can’t go to the dr to shell out another $500 for bloodwork.
I’m a 35 year old female, history of kidney stones (just had one lithotripsied). My blood pressure is always pretty high at the dr but usually 130/76 at home.
