I'm new here, I'm looking for a little advice, maybe some reassurance until my next rheumatologist appointment.
I'll keep it short and relevant to this forum. I've been under investigation for an autoimmune disease called Lupus for the last 6 weeks. I've had a very rapid, aggressive onset. however until my next rheumy appointment on the 22nd November im currently not on any medication.
I've had a few sets of bloods checking kidney function. Prior to this, my GFR has always been >90 and creatinine around 60 - perfect!
Since A&E with first symptoms of Lupus this has been my results -
26th Sep 17 - GFR 77, CRT 78
2nd Oct 17 - GFR 75, CRT 80
25th Oct 17 - GFR 67, CRT 88
BP always around 139/94
I'm a 26 year old female, 60kg with a height of 160. So as you can see I'm not over weight and very young! My diet is fantastic and I'm healthy! Well I was healthy until Lupus started eating me alive!
Itl be exactly a month after my last set of bloods with a GFR of 67 when I next see my rheumy, its only took a month for my GFR to go from >90 to 67 so I dread to think what itl be when I'm next in.
Also my NA sodium levels are below the normal range. And if you can see the pattern there with my CRT going up at the same pace as my GFR going down.
Has anyone experienced Lupus nephritis before and how long did it take ?
Thank you! Lots of love and healthy vibes to everyone, Jaz xx
