blood gfr versus urine gfr
Another situation that I am and would appreciate advice... asked for a more exact gfr rather that the above 60 that I got cuz not feeling well, did the 24 hour urine collection followed by the blood test. My urine gfr came out 62 my blood gfr 57. My dr said I am fine and don't need to be tested for 3 months. My creatine is 1 or 1.1 and has been going up since March. I am really feeling different. The nephrologist I did an email consult with in May said my kidneys were starting to fail as indicated by the protein and creatine levels. Concerned yet felt I could prove him wrong. The creatinine and protein have increased in the two weeks between the last labs and this urine/blood test. Should I insist on another blood draw to check it against or not? I am so tired of having to fight these drs. I still haven't gotten a referral to a neph either.

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
