As my mentioned in my blog post, my doctor redrew blood and also tested my urine. My urine was normal and my second blood tests came back with great results. I had a creatinine level of .98 and a GFR of 62. the only thing i could think of that would skew my results was a Kidney infection I had two weeks before my original test that made me pretty sick. I thought I had the flu I felt so bad. Maybe my kidneys were still feeling the affects even though I had finished my antibiotic. My doctor had a record of an earlier reading of my GFR at 55 as well so that may have been a sign that something was wrong before I felt it. I'm very very relieved and grateful. I feel like God just wanted to get my attention and if that's the case it worked. It opened my eyes as to how much more I need to be aware of what's going on inside my body. I never had a clue about how my kidneys functioned and what I can do to make sure they stay that way. I'm going to keep an eye on these things from now on. And I'll check back in from time to time to keep myself honest.
