I hope your kidney guy helps. Maybe have it rechecked. That sounds pretty serious. My endo at one point had me on an "ace inhibitor" (I hope I am saying the right thing) and it seemed to help pull me out of stage 1 kidney disease. Ask him about it. Good-luck and stay strong. emoticon

I'm by no means a kidney expert, but I thought that some function could come back if the right steps are taken- diet, exercise, no smoking, and really high up there is good blood sugar control.
I think most organs can be at least revived a little bit, but I don't know what that involves or how much function can be regained. Probably depends on a bunch of stuff....
Sending good kidney thoughts your way!

I am not familiar with GFR. I'LL HAVE TO LOOK AT MY BLOOD WORK!!

Maybe they made a mistake! (They sometimes do, ya know.)

What does your doctor say?

Please let us know.
