Hello, we were told in January that my husband was developing stage 1 KFD due to Hypertension. We asked about a specialists and dietician and was told by his PCP that a dietician wouldn’t be approved at this stage and she would refer him to a Nephrologist when she thought it was necessary. He was put on BP medication and told to watch his sodium intake.
Last week he was told he has Stage 3 KFD by the same PCP. I am confused and concerned. Does KFD advance that quickly? Did he misunderstand her on this 2nd visit? And still no referral to either a dietician or Nephrologist.
Now his PCP office is closed due to the Coronavirus and I cant get any answers. I uploaded both labs. I would appreciate any input. I don’t think we can wait until they reopen to figure this out. Especially if it jumped that quickly.
He is 48 yo 6’0” 193
