I am very confused; my latest blood test shows GFR 23%, creatinine 243, haemoglobin 9, Urea 14.7; looking on the internet, I think that puts me at stage 4 - is that right?
I have been told that I need not worry about my diet (only watch the salt levels which need to be as low as possible). I feel depressed, but not really that lacking in energy (though I do get breathless - which I suppose is the haemoglobin).
I get a heck of a lot of burning and itchy skin - mainly in the evenings - I dread that time of day; I try to put off going to bed until 10 pm, because I want to be so tired that I will fall asleep quickly. Oh, and the one thing I have not read or heard of from any other sufferer of CKD is that I permanently want to eat..
