Is there any person with kidney disease?

I just received some blood work today. My creatinine level was 1.9 and GFR was 36. I am a 59 year old white male. I did a cross fit work out less than 90 minutes before the test. I drank some water but I wonder if you have any experience with false high readings in such a situation. By the way my BUN was 31. One year ago my GFR was 52 (Creatinine at that time was 1.4).

Do you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or other problem?

My blood pressure yesterday was 132/71. I do not have diabetes. I do have a diagnosis of any other problem.

OK, don't worry, I will help you.

For your case, there are three kinds of cells in your kidney. The well working renal cells, which help you filter the blood and remove the toxins. The diseased renal cells, which can not work well as you expect. The dead renal cells, there is no way to save them up to now.

What I will tell you is that we can help you protect the normal cells from injuring and repair the diseased renal cells. Later, your GFR will be improved.
