I am in stage 4 CKD. I have labs checked every three mos and my GFR is usually around 20. At the beginning of August, it went to 15. I received an order to have labs rechecked and it came back 10. My sodium was low and my potassium was normal. My BUN was 59, and Creatinine was 4.8.
My doctor had me admitted to the hospital and placed me on IV fluids for a few days. I was discharged with all labs improved, and a GFR of 15. I was to have Renal Function tests to be done once a week for the next four weeks.
I had the labs drawn Thursday and got the results back and my GFR is 12. The BUN is 37, Creatinine 3.8, and my Sodium is low again at 136. Does anyone know if there is a chance of these results changing in the next few weeks? I'm staying hydrated, I exercise a few times a week. Is there anything else I should try? I always have dialysis popping around in my brain, maybe it's time?
Thank you in advance for a responses
