Hi tracieann,
I think the problem is kidney problems are not easy to diagnose, most of the results are better looked at as trends rather than just isolated tests.
Also there can be treatable reasons for changing results as well as permanent problems which will eventually lead to failure.
So GP's tend to tread carefully until they can eliminate various causes.

Best wishes.
