New Blood Test Results & Doctor Visit

I had to get some new lab tests done in advance of my doctor's appointment next week.  No major changes in what came up.  The results are:

  • Creatinine       3.74
  • GFR                17.48
  • BUN                45
  • Hemoglobin   12.2
  • Hematocrit     36.7

The doctor didn't have a whole lot to say about the blood test results.  Reinforced that there is not much he can do at this point to control kidney function.  He put me onto a new blood pressure medication as my pressure has increased slightly.  I have been on no medications and this is a very low dose of a new medication that I haven't been on before.  Otherwise, nothing too major from the appointment - go back in 6 weeks.
