I am 40 years old and male and have been diagnosed with kidney disease and I am very scared about this due to the fact I have two kids a loving wife and I don't want to lose them. I am afraid what this will do. I'm in stage 2 neph says my function is 75-80% however he also said according to your blood work it says 65% I don't get that. I have hematuria and recently proteinuria it was at 900 grams then started fish oils and recently went down to 611 this was in September of this year going back in January for my normal check ups which were usually every 3 months. Please any serious advice or just talking to me would help at this point.
I seriously do appreciate your honest answer. I went to my physical back in november of this year. You have to do a urine sample and so I did. when it was at the end of my physical they did a urine dip and said it looks like only a trace of protein now. I was 900 then went down to 611 in september of this year and now this. I dont know how true this is. I am seeing my neph in January. will update then.View Thread
