Understanding GFR and kidney disease: What's normal?
Just officially diagnosed ckd stage 3 June this year but doc has been monitoring. December 2018 GFR 56. June 2020 GFR 48. Was not given any thing other than water daily excersise and reduce alcohol. After research on ckd it looks very serious. Called doc back few days after appt for more info. Came with plant based low protein diet. Ordered some cookbooks and cobbled together what I called kidney diet. Follow up blood work now showed GFR 60!!! But monocytes and mch are high. Next appt is 10/2/20. Is this increase in GFR normal and will it last? BTW I am 66 will be 67 in c
