Re: egfr reading

Hi hansi,
Feeling tired is common with a low eGFR or it could be a low blood count.

I find that with my blood count below 120 I am noticeably more tired than usual but having said that I am tired/fatigued all the time.

Best wishes.

Hi hansi,
How doe's that compare with your last results, and how long since your last test?
Dialysis is usually started arround 10% but it also depends on how the patient is getting on.

Re: Protein in Urine

Hi Mags4743,
The BP looks good.

I think I would do as the consultant asked, and ncrease the dose but keep an eye on BP.
If he shows signes of low BP get in touch with your GP ASAP.

Best wishes.

Re: Protein in Urine

Hi Mags4743,
Welcom to the forum.

I have not had this problem but two thoughts - It is unlikley that the drug works in a linear fashion as the dose is increased (eg. twice the dose twice the effect).
What is his BP with the present dose?

Re: Coronavirus

I don't think the press conference will make much difference - I will continue shielding as best I can - any other just ain't worth the risk.

Re: Private messages.

Yes, that solved the problem, thank you JMan. I was using MS Edge, reverted to Explora 11, and cleared the Inbox as you said, one at a time. I am not great fan of private messaging, I feel all comments should be on the Forum so everyone can see what is happening, and it is there for future reference.

Re: Kidney Scan Request

Your kidneys normally produce a hormone called erythropoetin (EPO) which stimulats the production of red blood cells but sick kidneys do not produce EPO hence your low blood count.
Mircera is a synthetic version.

If it does the trick, you should feel less tired as your blood count increases.
