I wanted advice on my kidney private blood test results cant

Customer Question

I wanted advice on my kidney private blood test results cant get in touch with my GP
JA: Have you discussed the blood test with a doctor?
Customer: no can't get hold of him I have been seeing a private doctor for several years because of never being able to access the doctor but he retired earlier this year. I carried on having a private blood test done as the doctor reviews the results and comments but this time he suggested I needed to talk the results for my kidneys with a GP
JA: Got it. Have you used any medication for this?
Customer: no only got the results recently and gave up trying to contact my GP I thought I would try a private online service
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: Yes, I have an autoimmune disease that causes my immune system to go into overdrive and cause food intolerances that will affect me in different ways from vertigo to very dry splitting skin or just very itchy skin.
