Hello I am new here I’m not sure if this is weird to post but I recently went to the ER about two weeks ago regarding a headache at the time I wasn’t sure what was going on but the doctor at the hospital did my bloodwork he said everything came back normal but he was concerned about my creatinine level which was 1.50. 7 months ago in April it was 1.01 which I was to believe is normal. I never thought I had an issue with my kidneys before I’m a bit sensitive as my father recently passed away and he was on dialysis am I slowly approaching that same fate being on dialysis?
I really don’t understand how all of this works the doctor said that he wants me to see kidney specialist but that he doesn’t think I should lose sleep over it. it is possible that I was dehydrated, as the last bloodwork in April I was dehydrated as well and that creatinine was 1.24 I have never seen my creatinine go above 1.24 ( Which after being hydrated went back down to 1.02) I’m sorry if I’m rambling I’m just really afraid and I don’t understand what’s going on here I currently don’t have insurance to keep going back to doctors so I’m just trying to get an idea of what this could mean.
