Hi, I have had stage 3 for a few years now. my blood shows I am dehydrated sodium low red blood count low and potassium on the higher side. my egfr is 42, and my creatinine at 1.5 sometimes 1.7. my urea nitrogen bun all above normal. I drank about 6 16oz bottles a day with this blood work... SO I took it upon myself to add more water, more salt low potassium diet this past blood work, my blood work came back perfect! creatinine at 1.35 but my rbc was still alittle low.
is this normal with kidney disease so early? I am trying to tell my doctor something else is going on, all my doctors but they seem to just blame it on my kidneys. I cant go on drinking 10 16oz bottles a day and taking the salt shaker to my tongue. My blood pressure is VERY low also in the morning 99/56 and as the say goes on it goes up, then sometimes it drops to 101/60, its all over the place. ugh.
thanks in advance for any info!! :)
