I was diagnosed with stage 3a ckd in April and my eGFR readings have dropped from 57(in October 2012) to 53 to 51 to 49 to 48(May 2013).Another blood test for rheumatoid factor came back raised at 30. Dr trying to find cause of ckd. Could this RF level be the cause or a result of the ckd.Do not have arthritis or any symptom(I am only 45 ) with no other risk factors that could explain this kidney disease. Without a cause how can the decline be stopped as nnot far to go now until stage 3b is reached.
