Hi there, my tests for Creatinine and albumin indicated as my doctor said "slightly elevated". Creatinine 128 and I believe albumin 4.1. Of course I did my google research and was really terrified by all the studies done out of research centres and universities indicating the mortality predictor with microalbuminuria. It seemed like microalbuminuria is a death sentence. I am 43 male and discovered my blood pressure was creeping around the 145-150 over 90-95. Since that test about a month ago I have been monitoring my blood pressure, eating better and dropped about 10 pounds. With the help of bp medication my pressure looks more like 120-135 over 80-85 now and I plan to keep improving. I noticed the systolic reading was and still is being stubbornly high at times. Especially mid day when the stress is higher (mostly my kids).
I am really hoping that I have a good healthy 30-35 years of life left in me. Am I asking too much? Do these studies apply to everyone that at one time leaked enough protein in their urine to have microalbuminuria? I exercise frequently and from what I know have a healthy heart and am sure I can fix all the underlying factors that lead to this in a short time. Thanks for listening to my rant.
