I am a CKD patient who has been trying to ignore this condition and just do what I want. I have been told since 1990, as a young man, that I have had something wrong with my kidneys but that I was too young to worry about it. I was told it would be a concern later on in life. Well, 25 years passed in the blink of an eye and here I am at 47 years old, non-African American.
I am CKD 3B with an eGFR of 41, down from 44 last year. My Creatinine level is 1.91. I was checking previous lab results and I had been hovering around 45-44 for the past several years with creatinine around 1.75.
Seems that I've had a jump in Creatinine and a lowering in eGFR in just one year!!
I did see that in 2010, my eGFR was 44 but in 2012 my eGFR was 45. This, to me, suggests one of two things. Either there was a lab measuring error or there may be a way to increase eGFR.
I would love to here from other members on this site. I have finally had to stop sticking my head in the sand and pay attention to my kidneys.
Thanks in advance
