Hi new on here - looking for guidance
Posted: Fri Nov 27, 2020 12:52 pm
I’ve had stage 4 ckd for a number of years & ive been lucky enough that, after the first few drops, I stabilised at around 28. I was feeling unwell for a few weeks in October so requested a blood test to see if ‘physical’ cause rather than my mental health and was surprised & worried to find my kidney function had dropped to 21. I was referred by my GP back to our renal unit but they advised me that as it’s not urgent I wouldn’t be seen TIL at least January. By chance, I had another blood test this week as part of my annual diabetes review & was distressed to see its fallen again to 18 in just 2 weeks. If it continues at this rate I’ll be stage 5 by Christmas. However, I just can’t get hold of anyone to discuss this and my anxiety levels are through the roof! Any advice, suggestions, reassurances ..... would be gratefully received.
