I have these conditions and see a nephrologist. Latest GFR is 37, but was 42-45. I was admitted into the hospital for a twisted small bowel (wow painful). For 4 days I could not eat or drink and they gave me saline solution. Could these 4 days have harmed my kidneys more? Nephrologist said I took better care of myself than the hospital did. I saw the drop in GFR over 2 weeks. I'm getting another Creatinine clearance and protenia test soon. I may wear a bracelet for the NDI as I need water often and urinate about 5 or more times a night. I've managed this over the years pretty well. I'm 60 now and have always drank water and the bathroom through the night. I was on lithium which created my CKD and NDI. Now I'm off on a different medicine Lamotrigine, which is awesome. Wish I'd gotten off Lithium sooner.
