blood work done in December 2019. Your kidney function was as follows
BUN : 16 , creatinine: 1.08, globular filtration rate: 56

This time the 3 numbers are test done in late August.
BUN: 26, creatinine: 1.2, globular filtration rate: 51.6

I have been asked to get an ultrasound of my kidneys which will be done on September 4th before I see kidney specialist. Can someone advise what these numbers mean and what I should do to slow or if this can be reversed? Thank You!
