Hi Doctor, 

This is my first time in this forum. I was found with low kidney function (42%) after a regular health check, and I had to go abroad for a month and doctor permit me to go, so I return after one month and check it has gone down 32% and cretnine to 2.2 surprisingly. So doctor conducted all different blood test and all came out normal. only above 32% and 2.2, and high protein in urine was found. I had BP for some 15 years and was not properly controlled, stupid me. 

So doctor advice me to go through a biopsy, and results are below. But I am abroad and waiting to meet the doctor for comments. 

5 Glomeruli are present 

IgG - Negative 

IgA - Negative 

IgM- Granula deposits are seen in capillary walls and mesangium of one glomerulus. 

C3 -   Granula deposits are seen in capillary walls and mesangium of the same glomerulus which showed IgM deposits. 

Please advice me on this, what this says, I am worrying. 

Thank you.

    I am definitely not qualified to help you interpret your biopsy results and so won't comment on that part of your post.

    My father had chronic kidney disease resulting from high blood pressure. While he did work hard to control his blood pressure throughout his life, he still ultimately developed chronic kidney disease as a complication.

    I'm not sure what specific treatment plan your nephrologist will put into place for you but suspect it will include a low sodium diet as well as a low fat diet. You'll also likely be encouraged to exercise regularly--just walking daily can help a lot.

    Of course the most important thing is for you to get back to your nephrologist as soon as possible. Effective treatment could improve your renal function some, or stabilize it, or at least slow its progression.

    Best wishes,

    Marj

    I also can't comment on your medical results but to reassure you it's not always bad, I have had ckd stage 3 since diagnosis 15yrs ago cause mainly by high blood pressure which is well controlled. I don't see either a urologist or nephrologist, my regular GP does blood test annually. I have never been told to follow a specific diet etc. Different doctors say different things so the best thing to do is follow your own doctors advice on how to manage it. 

    Your Egfr is a good indicator of how your ckd is although this can go up as well as down sometimes.

    Hi All,

    I started medication to control BP and some medicine for Kidney at the begening of November, and started the food control. I did one more thing in 2016, from January i went on a Kitosis diet without consulting a doctor. 

    After medication, I check my Serum creatinine and it came out as 1.18 (GFR 74%) just yesterday. I am hopeful this will improve further. Any comments on this situation is useful.

    Thank you all.

      This is wonderful news! Actually, if you're able to stabilize your renal function at this current level fillowing your current treatment plan, you should be feeling and functioning quite well! Your most recent renal panel results actually have your kidneys functioning quite well!!
