Hello all. My husband is 35 years old. He's been a smoker in his early teens but he's been on and off for the last 5 years. Early this year around June we discovered that there was protein in his urine for a insurance check up. We didnt take it serious since he's pretty much healthy. We took it again and same thing. We went to check in the clinic and indeed there's protein and even occult blood too. We then was referred to a kidney specialist. We did the ultrasound, the blood and urine tests again. And even a 24 hr urine test. Protien came back high in the 24hr over 1k. Theres still a small trace of blood. Other than that nothing they can find. Now they was us to do a biopsy which my husband is highly against. Bc ultrasound came back fine, kidney size is fine. Blood and urine test all came back normal except high protiens and small trace of blood. But husband dont want to poke anything if nothing is wrong.
The test results from the specialists came back with a creatinine level of 1.13 but earlier when we did in the clinic (a month before) it was only .91. I'm scare as to why it jumping so high in such short amount of time. His egrf listed on the result is only 84 which I feel is quite low for his age. He should be up in the 100s. Isnt it?
We bought some dip test and we noticed that after he did the blood and urine test in the specialists office, the blood no longer shows up on the dip test. Idk if its bc he had stopped smoking thats why or what. But no more sign of bloos but the specialists just brushed off like its comes and goes.
My husband dont have hypertension or diabetes. Everything they tests for came back negative such as lupus etc. But now they are pushing tbe biopsy bc he has a half sister who passed away because of kidney failure at 30 as well. She really didnt fight she lost her husband 3 years before that. She basically just gave up. But her was noticed through her first pregnancies they warned her theres protiens in her urine she should come back and look at it. But she never went back. Lasted for almost 8 yrs before she had kidney failures. The speacilist thinks its either genetic or igfa something like that.
My husband we are a young fam. We have 3 young kids and one on the way. I cant imagine life without him. What should we do? Need some opinions?
