    Bit of a disappointment with latest blood results. All the kidney function I'd gained over the last 6 weeks or so, has been lost and I'm back down to 36%. I won't let it worry me too much.

    Is the up and down to be expected?

    The ups and downs are expected, but there's been many more downs than ups. From a high of 51% in mid April, it's dropped to 36%.
    Admittedly, the 51% seemed a bit of an anomaly as the next result was 42%. So it's really more like a 6% drop in almost 5 months, rather than a 15% drop.

    The trend is what is disturbing. Other wise my readings of kidney function usually fluctuate from test to test and my doctors are not concern over changes of a few points as long as they go both up and down. They tell me that changes of 5 or 10 points can often be due to levels of hydration or other factors.

    The long term trend is what they emphasize is important. What is the norm for most transplant cases? Doctors should be familiar of what readings are consider normal but maybe there are too many variables to make such an assessment?

    Darn it, Pete. I guess we shouldn't get too excited when you have a good trend.
    But you are the important one here, and I'm glad you aren't worrying much yet. Perhaps the tests aren't perfectly accurate over time or hydration has been a factor, as drz suggested. We will just have to wait patiently for the next results, and we are all hoping for another improvement. Best of luck with that!
