Hi I'm Dr. Phil
Can I ask your first name?
Nice to meet you
Do you know what your GFR is?
did they tell you what % the kidneys are at?
no just to have another test in 6 months for U&E
do you take any medicines or have high blood pressur?
I take Bisoprolol and Warfarin for Atrial Fibrillation
okay great! That is helpful
do you take any over the counter pain killers?
no dont really like taking pills
I can tell you that a mild decrease in kidney function is not a huge deal
the kidney function naturally goes down a little with age
The key is to avoid medicines that will damage the kidney more
having period checks is a good idea
and drink lots of water
usually the kidney function will stay stable over time if you stay healthy
ok thats what I thought. Thanks very much. nice to 'talk'
you're welcome :)
any more questions?
no thats fine thanks
Did I do good work for you today?
yes thank you
