Iv seen your response but you hvnt put my mind at ease as i have been worring about this for ages and cant sleep
I am sorry you are worried about your kidney function.
but the only way to know if you have kidney disease is to get blood testing and urine testing.
I need to get more information from you to best help you.
when was the last time you had blood testing?
Well, as i said i have to do another ARC test, which is urine, Blood test prob last year in hospital when i was told that my kidneys nearly failed. was in there because of a leg fracture. I am nearly 68 yrs old, live on my own, have no support and Im very worried! Thanks for trying to help me! Jenny
you are welcome
get a copy of your blood testing and check your BUN and creatine levels
I would be happy to review these test with you.
a good way to know if your kidneys are working is if you are making urine and peeing daily.
the purpose of the kidneys is to make urine
if you are peeing regularly and making urine, then your kidneys are at least functioning and working.
how well they are working needs further urine and blood testing results.
Thank you for your help Jenny
