Hi, @thecorporatespy. I'm glad to hear that you and your doctor will meet on Friday to talk in more detail about your laboratory results and other issues causing your apprehensions. That's the best medicine I could imagine for dealing with too-little information about what's going on with our health. Hope you have time to jot down a list of questions that are most worrisome for you now — and perhaps in the longer run of the past. I'll bet that your worries will be relieved a great deal from just getting information from an expert professional. The final brick in this structure is mutual respect and trust between you and your medical team — your Primary Care Provider and any specialists on whom you rely. And you can get a measure of confidence also from other members of Mayo Connect. Martin

@predictable I certainly agree with you, a feeling of relief once questions are answered.

@thecorporatespy taking time to write down questions/concerns you have, ahead of time, will make a world of difference to get the information you want. A eGFR of 55 is considered Stage 3A. Follow the guidelines of your nephrologist, eat a healthy diet, get your exercise, lower blood pressure if that's an issue, watch sugar intake.
