What is causing his levels to increase? I keep asking the doctor- and he keeps saying it doesn't matter, because he has a terminal case with severe scarring, so there is no chance that he'll regain any function. He also says it's "guaranteed" to continue to decrease and that he's expecting him to be on dialysis by the end of the year.
But it's going up...so doesn't that mean it could keep getting better? Is it normal for it to fluctuate so randomly?
How fast does GFR usually decline?
I'm not sure if it matters- but he's 27 and has proteinuria, hypertension and hyperlipidemia. He's only on meds for the blood pressure/cholesterol now.
