Went to the doctor yesterday for extreme swelling of my abdomen down to my feet and thought it was from my high blood pressure (have had this problem for the last 7 months, after having my son). However, my dr heard my heart murmur and said a valve didnt sound like it was working properly. This made sense because I have heart arythimia (fast heart rate) and have known about the murmur since I was 8 (now 26). Anywho, she sent me for a blood test and gave me a script to go get a heart ultrasound done. Well, today she called and told me my MICROALBUMIN AND CREATNINE LEVEL SHOULD BE 30, MINE IS 659! From what ive read, its too much protein in the urine and my kidneys are not filtering the way they should be. Ive read I should keep protein out my diet which REALLY sucks cuz I LOVE meat! Anyone else going through or has gone through this???? Should I be worried?
