In late April of this year I had a routine blood test that showed my gfr was 41 and my creatine was elevated. At the time I was on oral Voltaran for arthritis. I immediately stopped the Voltaran. They continued to do blood tests and my gfr continued to fall while my creatinine and potassium continued to rise. Was hospitalized for closer observation and ultimatelyy gfr fell to 20 and potassium rose to 6.6. After stopping all medications and multiple IVs I was finally stabilized at gfr 31 and released. My gfr rose to 41 and stayed there. Folllwed the diet, kept my diabetes in check, have low blood pressure and every thing was smooth sailing with my new normal. Now suddenly without any reason that I or my drs can find my gfr is 30 and my creatinine and potassium are rising. Any ideas why things are in the toilet again and how can I stop it from happening or getting worse? It's scary because if I hadn't had a blood test I wouldn't have had any idea that my kidneys were failing again. Sorry this was so long but I keep searching for answers and can't seem to find any.
