My eGFR has run between 85-90 since at least 2012. My last appointment in September showed an eGFR of 77. My doctor was unconcerned with this. I had not eaten or drank anything in over 13 hours when that test was done, so perhaps I was a little dehydrated.
In December I was concerned about my kidneys because I was urinating more frequently than normal. I went to the dr. They did a urinalysis and it was near perfect. Everything was right in the middle range, and zero signs of protein. So I let it go.
Now it's time for me to go get my thyroid checked and I am terrified they will find that I have at least Stage 2 CKD.
How accurate is eGFR? Could my creatinine just be high due to being Hypothyroid? My dr. never tests anything more than my TSH. Am I being under treated. I really am scared to even go to the dr. I don't want to find out that I have an incurable disease. I am only 37 years old. I weight about 200lbs. (6' tall).
