Hello, I recently received some disappointing news regarding my creatinine and albumin levels. I am in Canada so I believe the numbers are different but I recall creatinine 128 and albumin 4.1. This put me at an EGFR of 59 at 43 years old. I had initially panicked reading all the negative things one can find on the internet but I have calmed down and began working on adjusting a few lifestyle things that may have affected it (high blood pressure, protein intake.) I am fairly muscular and workout intensely, I thought that may be a factor. However, one thing I remember that has always been an issue with me is my urinating. I always go quite frequently. And now I have progressed to waking up several times in the night and sometimes urinating in very small amounts even when I feel like I have to go. Urine is quite foamy at times too. My doctor doesn't seem concerned. Can these urinating issues improve with lowering blood pressure and being wiser with aggravating factors? Thank you!
