I am 45 with a gfr of 54 and creatine 1.09. I asked to see a Nephrologist, she was good but not too concerned and hesitated when I asked her if I was entering stage 3 KD.
For a few months I have been noticing chronic: fatigue, achiness in my muscles or possibly bones, joint pain, at times ichiness and flank pain. It subtle but there. I have a positive ANA with all negative except MCTD I will see a rheumatologist in March for the first time although the nephrologist who I've seen once a year ago said she did not think I had Lupus from looking at my blood work. However I've been assuming feeling my symptoms is a auto immune cause until I began to wonder if it's my kidney's??? What are your thoughts??
