I am a 30 year old male who has always been relatively healthy but a recent routine blood/urine test showed I have stage 2 kidney disease.
My eGFR is ~ 80, blood creatinine levels at 107 and proteinuria of 0.7g per day.
Whilst I understand this is still at a relatively early stage, I am really worried. I have just got married and we are hoping to start a family but this has raised a lot of questions in my mind.
I have had a consultation with a doctor who suggested it could be IGA Nephropathy, though this is yet to be confirmed. My BP was slightly elevated though he said this could have been due to the "white coat effect".
How worried should I be and what are my chances of preserving kidney function long term?
Would love to hear from people who have had similar experiences.
Thank you all.
