Kidney function rapidly changing


(ShortCake) #1

I recently had lab work done, my creatinine came back at 1.51 and my gfr came back at 48, however these tests were just done back in January with the results of creatinine at 0.8 and gfr at 116, is this possible for kidney function to drop this month over the course of 7 months? I go back on Monday to redo the blood work however I’m extremely nervous waiting until then.

Hi @ShortCake, anything and everything is “possible” and you [and your doctor] are doing the wise thing by getting new lab work BEFORE jumping to any conclusion - or establishing treatment.
Were the tests done correctly 7 months ago? There are many variables.
