I'm a bit confused as usual (lol). I went back through my paper work after reading a post on here last week about chronic kidney disease. In one of my blood tests about 1.5 years ago, I noted I was stage 3 CKD. I didn't know anything about it it and neither the doctor or the specialist has said anything, nothing at all. So I didn't even give it another thought until now.
I've been researching this week and now getting anxious that the medical people are ignoring something that needs attention or at least keeping an eye on? I've read that CKD stage 3 needs regular blood tests to check it doesn't accelerate.
I'm 44 so it can't be age that has caused this.
Is it common to have CKD stage 3 with Thyroid disease?
I often get swollen ankles and puffy feet particularly left one and I just put it down to bad circulation or the thyroid causing me to bloat, but now read kidney disease can cause this. Sigh.
Why hasn't the doctor alerted me to keep an eye on this?
