I am 62 yr female. My brother had transplant 13 years ago due to kidney failure from extreme HBP so I am familiar with what he went through. 6 years ago I began to experience health issues that appeared to be kidney related and they have continued yearly. Like clock work every early fall I have almost every symptom of ckd. My GP does blood work GFR 74 ultrasound, CT scan, urologist, etc and by February everything goes away. ( we eat a LOT of fresh fruit and veggies through the summer ) This year has been more extreme and my potassium showed high at 5.4 for the first time but my gfr and crestine remain the same. I have low BP that can spike and vascular issues. My GP keeps running tests but aside from potassium that has gone down to 4.8 with change is diet (less veg) does not know what else to do. Any suggestions why this happens and direction.
