What are your symptoms

I like to do a study to get a feel of things. First, write at least your last GFR. If you can several, starting with the oldest one. Then, write your symptoms.

53, 61,69, 48, 55, 54

Lower back discomfort, leg cramps, mild swelling feet and uncles, Upper chest discomfort, sore muscles, strange sensations in mouth and face. I think due to swelling, slight vertigo now and then.

69 years old, not overweight, heart in great condition, but suffer from other things. Can't tell for sure if all these symptoms have to do with CKD.

  • I had, and have, zero symptoms. My eGFR has remained stable for the 2 years since diagnosis. I'm fortunate that my primary care doctor tested for indications of kidney disease and notified me of slight changes in my test results immediately. I became the patient of a nephrologist, took the one-day Davita course and bought several cookbooks recommended by people on this site. I also consulted a renal nutritionist.

  • Firstly, have you been diagnosed with CKD and, if so, what are your eGFR and creatinine levels?

    My back gets tired easily. Doesn't really hurt and overall fatigue, high blood pressure

  • Since 2013 to now ...

    52, 60, 57, 72, 57, 63 (held for a year), 76, 73 (big protein spill in 2016) , 67 (diagnosed IGA Nephropathy after biopsy), 81, 70

    Generally I feel fine, but occasional hand, ankle and feet swelling. When I have a flare-up I have nausea, body aches and extreme fatigue.

    I have many food intolerances which my doctors feel have either caused or antagonize my IGA nephropathy due to the inflammation it causes.

  • 63, 51, 63 and 2 weeks later 43. I have high BP, blood and protein in urine, sickness and nausea most days, sometimes back pain and fatigue. I'm 26 and had preeclampsia in pregnancy, had my first nephrologist meeting yesterday he thinks I have glomerulonephritis but having an urgent kidney biopsy on Tuesday due to some of my symptoms and the rapid gfr decline. Fair to say I am pretty worried!
