I see my nephrologist in a couple of weeks, and am going to call tomorrow to see if he will go ahead and order my regular 24 hour urine. Its been awhile since he has done this. I am happy with most of my doctors, but he isn't as proactive as he should be. Its been a big problem. Thanks for responding.
I'm definately going to call the nephrologist's office tomorrow to obtain a script for a 24 hour urine. As far as finding a new dr., it seems like finding a good nephrologist is very hard to do in Columbus. At least for the problems I have. Aside from regular kidney dysfunction from Lupus, I have a rare problem called Loin Pain Hematuria Syndrome. Due to this problem, I'm on daily narcotics. Anyway, thanks for everything.
I wish I could go on an Ace Inhibitor, but I have a heart condition that requires a beta blocker. So, I have to stay on that, and will be on that for the rest of my life. I had a kidney biopsy in 2001 that showed damage, amoung other things. I wonder if its time for another one. Hmm.
