Will radiation from medical procedures affect my kidneys?
My current eGFR is 25. I question any medical procedure involving radiation if not necessary. My reasoning is: that I've been getting mammograms for 30+ years. I was treated for breast cancer in 2011 with a mastectomy. Since then, my kidney function because of long-term lithium use has deteriorated. I don't want to get mammograms anymore. I've been healthy otherwise, and cancer-free. I try to avoid antibiotics and most medicines because of kidney disease. I follow a kidney-friendly diet. Any opinions on this?
