Welcome to the forum. I am so sorry to hear that you aunt is so sick. I really think you did the smart thing by making an appointment to see a nephrologist. I'm not a doctor, but have CKD myself. I want you to know that even though her kidneys have declined there's always hope. I have been classified as end stage and on dialysis with a GFR of 6% and now i'm off dialysis and holding my own.
The primary goal is getting to the bottom of the problem; which the nephrologist should be able to determine and it may just be fixable!! THank God she has someone like you to look out for her best interest. My creatinine has been up to 13.0 and then recovered. So, hang in there! These are not the worst numbers i've ever seen, but there's no reason to let her continue to decline! Keep us informed! God Bless you, Judy
