The question is whether or not I should consider this an early sign of kidney disease? To put this question in perspective:
I had my first checkup in 15 years. The doctor says my blood test results were generally good as were my vitals. No high blood pressure, bad lung function, etc.
I have high cholesterol (Which I am now actively combating with regular exercise(5 mile brisk walk every weekday) and diet adjustment: Way more veggies (Raw and steamed, way more fruit, an attempt at less sodium. Much less red meat, alternating fish and white meat chicken for dinner throughout the week).)
I started smoking at 19 and quit (Mostly) by 26. Switched over to vaporizer and had the occasional pack (1-3 maybe less over the course of a year) over a week or so when I couldn't access vape store. And recently due to Welbutrin, my vaping activity stopped completely. (I haven't vaped since the 2nd of October 2021 and it is now the 5th with minimal cravings and no withdrawal symptoms) I do not have any trouble breathing at or exerting myself for exercise.
Should I consider this a momentary flux in function? And can this function return to normal? Should I screen for damage?
