Mild kidney damage/stage 3a
I carried out some tests and did an abdominal pelvic scan because I was having persistent high blood pressure.The test showed I have mild kidney damage with a high level of creatinine.
My nephrologist prescribed two drugs for me: COVERAM & Bisoprolol fumarate and in a space of two weeks my creatinine went from 187µmol/L to 152µmol/L just on the drugs. Sadly, my creatinine went back to 163µmol/L last week and 160µmol/L when I checked today. How can I know from the Imaging scan result if my kidneys are injured or scarred ? Also, I found out that the egfr is not the best means to check for kidney function, what test can I possibly do to check how efficient my kidneys are functioning?
