33 yr old male
Left kidney removed shortly after birth (due to infection)
24ml/min/1.73m2 (stage 4 CKD?)
I've been to see several doctors in recent weeks as there seems to have been a decrease in kidney function - spike in uric acid and creatinine. They have all been hesitant to give me estimates about the likelihood of needing a transplant - one speculated I may never need one while the other guessed I will in 3-5 years. I have sat down with a dietician and will make the necessary changes to keep an eye on potassium, phosphate etc. but I was wondering if you might be able to offer an opinion in terms of the likelihood of a transplant, or further complications I should be wary of, with the heart for eg?
Thanks very much,
