This is my first real discussion post- a friend recommended that I post my question to see what you all have experienced.
I recently got my kidney tests back, and my results included the following:
Creatinine, serum: 1.1 mg/dL
Glomerular Filtration Rate: 59 NB mL/min
Microalbumin, UR, QN: 13.9 mg/L
Creatinine, Urine: 121.0
Microalbumin/creatinine: 11.5 ug/mg
My lab levels are usually comparable to these levels, and appear to have been for the past six years (I looked at my old lab levels). My serum creatinine tends to run from 0.9-1.1. I'm just worried that I'm heading toward kidney failure...what do you all think??
Should I be worried?? My blood pressures are always around 100-110/60, and my HbA1c's haven't been above 6.7 for the last 5 years (usually am around the 6.2-6.4 range). I do exercise a lot (I run marathons and do triathlons) and I do eat a fairly high protein diet as well. I also am TERRIBLE about drinking any fluids...terrible. I'm trying to think of drinking fluids like taking medicine, and so far have increased my intake from 1 cup of coffee a day to about 60 fl oz of differing fluids (including water) since I got these results.
Thank you for any input, good or bad!
