    Wow!! Compared to yours, my numbers are the picture of health. My creatinine has been edging up to 1.6 and my eGFR has been edging down through the mid 40s. I have an appointment with a nephrologist in December. Dr Villa Forte says my kidneys are “tired”. I have several benign cysts in each kidney (my Dad also had them). I have been dxed with stage 3 CKD.

    In addition, I have BPH and excessive post-void retention. I take finasteride and flomax to treat the urinary symptoms of frequency and urgency. Urinalyses have been normal for nine years.

    I have been in remission since 2014 and off prednisone since 2018. I feel pretty good, but at age 75, I’m starting to slow down a bit.

    Hope your treatment plan gives the desired results.
