In panic mode after having a blood test for cholesterol. I received a call to say that the test had identified a GFR of 46. I’ve never heard of having a test for GFR when being tested for cholesterol. Anyway, I’ve not got an appointment for an ultrasound scan. Panic has set in, mainly because I had a gynae cancer 6 years ago. Mind in overdrive- recurrence.
Just wonder what could cause a low GFR result? I was taking Omeprazole for acid reflux at the time and had been taking it for three weeks.
I have also had problems with repeated UTIs and take an antibiotic when required, but not had a problem in the last 4 months.
I’m 60 years old and have normal blood pressure.
