I am a 28 year old male, i do not smoke or drink. 6 months ago my annual blood work showed my kidney function was great, my creatinine came back at 82 umol/l (range 62-115) and my gfr came back at 115 ml/min(range >90) which is also great and upon looking back at my records it has been those exact numbers for the past 10 years, also great.
now the issue, in the past 5 months i have complained to my family doctor about various issues, nasous/vomiting, frequent urination, difficultly urinating, lightheaded, and ive also had to go on 2 max dosages of blood pressure meds for sudden high blood pressure issues which have developed.
I ended up in the er a few weeks ago for sudden muscle dysfunction, and a sudden spike in blood pressure, they found various issues with my blood work and the one thing that they didn't mention they found was my Creatinine which has always been in the low 80s was 103 umol/l and my gfr which has always been 115 was reported as LOW at 85 ml/min with a note saying consistent with mildy decreased kidney function.
do you think the sudden drop in kidney function along with the symptoms that have developed in the past 4 months are at all concerning? or am i overthinking it?.
