Kidney function tests. Second post.

Posted , 3 users are following.

high - sodium, creatinine, protein in urine, and albumin/Creatinine ratio.

Low - uric acid, creatinine renal clearance, GFR 52 (was 64 last week)

2 years ago GFR was 108 so it's been a gradual decline.

Foamy urine.

Nauseated daily

Haven't been diagnosed with anything.

These are from blood, spot urine and 24 hour urine test.

AND STILL no call back from my Doctor. Getting so frustrated.

    Hi Laurie

    You need to call your Dr, dont wait for him. Is your potassium ok?

    Make sure you are drinking plenty fluids as high sodium is dehydration!

      I did. I called Monday and again today. Found out today she wasn't in but is back tomorrow. I'm drinking lots of water. Hoping it's just dehydration but at the same time it's driving me nuts not knowing.

      I'm just really hoping it's not the amiodarone I'm on that's doing it.

      Thanks Jane.

      Laurie, where do you live? In the IS most doctor's offices have nurse practitioners who will see you when the doctor is our. Regardless I agree completely with Jane; it's imperative that you have a follow-up visit with your doctor. If it were me I'd arrive for that visit asking if it's time for a referral to a nephrologist. Your data shows a fairly significant decline in function over a two year time period. It would be good to have a specialist look at your renal function to figure out what's going on.
