Talking How Are Your Kidney Function Tests?

I was wondering if any others are being closely watched by their doctors for their kidney functions?

My test results 8/6/10 were: CREATININE 1.2 mg/dL, and GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE was 61-NB.

On May 30, 2009 my CREATININE was 2.5 and the GFR was 16.

Thanks to God I have completely recovered from severe renal failure.

Also, what are you doing to keep from going on dialysis?

Thanks for sharing,

Pastor Paul

Last blood test, creatinine was 1.2 (normal) and GFR was 47 which is low. I am on a diuretic and my doctor said that that my kidney tests are being thrown off because of them.

I can't remember for sure but I believe my creatinine was high the last time I went in for blood tests. My doctor wasn't too worried about it. I go back next month so I will see what happens then.
