I've already received some lab esults

"GFR Estimate, Non African American

In patients with known chronic kidney disease, the stage of disease based on eGFR is interpreted as follows:
eGFR results 30 - 59 mL/min/1.73m2 = Stage III CKD (chronic kidney disease), or moderate kidney disease."

My kidney function has increased by 1%, just enough to take me from Stage Four CKD back to Stage Three.  Just one point away.

A step at a time.
Better than the other way !

I'll see what the nephrologist has to say next week. I was at 45 when I left the hospital. Now I'm down to 30. If something else doesn't kill me first, this will get me. So I've managed to commit suicide without really trying.
