Looking online at my dr summary (which I normally don't look at), in the list of my normal diagnoses there was added "ckd stage 2 (mild)". Well, of course I flipped out. I was surprised that he never mentioned this to me. He had that down on three previous summaries. Looking back over my years of summaries I saw that at age 58 (7 yrs ago) he noted that kidneys were normal with creatinine of 1.0. My latest numbers every 6 months have been 1.23 (47), 1.14 (50), 1.02 (58), 1.13 (50). To me that indicates stage 3. Can he be giving me stage 2 based on other indicators or lack of (no protein in urine etc)? When I mention this he tells me to hydrate and drink a lot of water. I recently (2 months ago) weaned myself off of the anxiety meds I've been on but have to consider going back on as my anxiety with this is full blown! Can't sleep, wake up early in a panic anticipating the worse. I'm extremely frightened for my future - I'm a 65 year old female - thanks for any words of wisdom you may have.
