God bless you. I see a kidney doctor on Tuesday the 29th of April and will most likely get a similar diagnosis as you.

been thinking need to talk to my doc about this some more.. have come up with more questions.. like how serious is this.. should I be worried? how long does it take to go through the stages"get worse"… do i have to?

well Im back.. I am offically diagnosed…I have chronic Kidney disease, not happy about that ..but knew it was true, so glad to have docs that will acknowledge it, and treat it.. feel much safer..for that Im happy…have a doc that I like , can work with, and trust to take good care of me.

That is good that you have an official Dx! Sorry you have it though! What stage did your nephro say your kidney failure happened to be?

she agreed with you , said im at abiout GFR 70 and in stage 2.

basically it means..watch.(blood testing). and also balance what meds I take so they do the most good for my other illnesses that I need them for, while at the same time trying to make sure Im not on any drug that will do too much kidney damage..a.balancing act… also ..making sure
Im doing other things to take care of myself..hard sometimes…big one right now..drink more water. shed like to get me off more meds but that just isnt practical-they are almost all needed, but trying.

Im also told.. thayt since im diabetic its a given that Ihave kidney desease. dr b wouldnt acknowledge this…thats what scared me…dr Kaw thinks its very important that Im seeing her.

We talked about Dan too…that was hard..learned more about why he died.. .. he was septic …she said there was so much wrong..with his body…sad. I love you Dan
, I miss you Dan.
