I'm sure there are- so hello! I found out almost 2 months ago that my latest eGFR results showed that my kidneys are now in the hyperfiltration stage (104%)
My diabetic case manager told me about it and suggested I start taking lisinopril to help protect my kidney's. I do not have high blood pressure.
Since I started taking the lisinopril I've been getting constant headaches and my primary doc said to go in and have my blood pressure checked a few random times- so today I went in and got checked (120/77) and the nurse asked who my nephrologist was. I don't have one!
Should I have one? Its not considered chronic kidney disease until you reach stage 2 Underfiltrating and protein in urine. That's what I want to prevent.
