My GFR is around 50, so I know it's not too bad yet, but I wonder why I have this, as I am in great health otherwise. I've never smoked or drank alcohol, I'm not overweight, I don't have high B.P. or any other health conditions except mild hypothyroidism, for which I take 50 levothyroxine daily. I am quite active and fit. I wonder how common it is for someone like me to have CKD. My doctor just says 'don't worry about it' but I can't help worrying, and imagining it just getting worse and worse, since I can see no good reason why I have it in the first place. There seems to be nothing further I can do about it, as my lifestyle is already as healthy as I can make it. Any thoughts welcome.
