Want to add I am a 62 year old male with well controlled diabetes a1c of 5.9 lost 20 pounds since last blood work 7 months ago.. Gfa was 60. I am in the best shape that i have been for years . doctor wants to do recheck in two months.
Also no foam in urine .
One more thing started taking tricor six months ago, could that be part of the reason both numbers went uo?
