So the kidney doctor is pleased with my current lsb work but nonetheless he is cautiously optimistic. Said to not forget no matter how good my numbers look, I still have Stage 4 kidney disease with a GFR of 21. 15 would mean automatic dialysis! That is not too far off however it appears I can now concentrate more on delaying dialysis for as long as possible and postponing further kidney disease with a continued healthy diet, exercise, BP and Diabetes control, etc. Gee, I thought that was what I was already doing. :
Anyway more talk of positive steps forward and less talk of kidney dialysis and transplant this apt which I will take as a good sign!! :D My BPwas 130/64 today but it was hard to hear. Why? Who knows, but I will take he lower BP any day. :) Next blood work set for April 15th and apt with kidney doc on April 17th! Thanks for the continued prayers and well wishes everyone!! I'm not out of the woods yet, and may never be however I am in a better place than I was 2 months ago.
