    Understood. I would definitely not test your kidney function immediately after a 30 minute run. Please retest on a different day and try to ensure you are well hydrated.

    I would not be concerned about a single GFR reading as they are sensitive to a single blood test - your creatinine - which can often be impacted by dehydration for example.

    Hello,

    Hard to comment about a case specifically without knowing more details. However, Rituximab is an excellent alternative to cyclosporine. I would ask his provider about it. The pivotal paper about this this drug in this disease is attached below:

    Rituximab or Cyclosporine in the Treatment of Membranous Nephropathy
