Stage 2 kidney disease??/ it is possible to change stages??
Tuesday, October 08, 2013
I got my labs back today - I am officially in stage 2 kidney disease.
YES, my nephrologist doctor changed my status... my numbers have been consistent for about 2 years, now.
My 1st nephrologist said my status would never be changed - he said as long as my numbers fluctuate, because I was stage 3 when diagnosed, I will always be stage 3... well my new neph changed my status.
The status of stage 2 or 3 does not worry me, what worries me is this disease - period. I will continue to work towards stage one readings (which is where my numbers are) and not advance this disease to any higher stage.
My numbers: Creatinine is .91
Doing a happy dance over here...
