When is it time to change care to a Gerontologist?
I am 70yo. Have always been healthy with no chronic illness. Two years ago during my annual physical I was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease, MCD. Having never been on medication, I started taking high dose prednisone. The side effects were awful. I am now taking Tacrolimus with similar side effects. My PCP is 30 something and appears to think this is just the aging process. I am having trouble finding a gerontologist. I don’t want to keep changing doctors but don’t know how or where to start looking.
