I am 37... diagnosed with stage 2 CKD at 36 years (GFR 65) No health problems, BP usually low, definitely not diabetic, reasonable diet, average weight. I was told to have an annual check on my bloods... as of last week my GFR was 60. I have to see my gp in 6 months apparently but im really concerned; mainly as I have no idea why I have CKD. I am a recovering alcoholic but haven't drank for 10 years. Do you suggest I just wait 6 months to see my GP or should I be insisting on a referral to specialist... I will do anything in my power to maintain what kidney function I have and don't want to be wasting time if there is something I could be doing to change something in my life and helping my kidneys. Not sure if im blowing it all out of proportion but reading stuff on the internet is making me want to make changes and get to the bottom of it!! Any advice would be very much appreciated, I cant stop worrying about it!!
