I am a 30 year old male with no history kidney disease in family. My only problem is that I dont drink enough water, mainly sodas and juices.

Recently I was looking over test and I seen that my GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE is 79-NB. I googled it and found out that this falls in STAGE 1 kidney disease. I called doc and she said it's neither good or bad and to drink more water and decrease caffeine.

I want to go to ER or urgent care, since it takes months to see my doc sometimes due to scheduling. Should I be concerned about my kidneys.

Also what is prognosis for somoene who is 30 with stage 1 kidney disease?

Recently

Welcome to Healing Well.

The advice your doctor gave you is quite good. With the info you give on what you usually drink I would definitely follow his advice and see what happens.

Take care,
Bill
