Re: Test results and feeling
There is a very good reason why you feel ok. I felt fine at that level too. The problem is that kidney disease is typically very slow progressing and you get used to not feeling 100%. Unfortunately, you will begin to get tired and have a tendency to feel sick sometimes. I am not a doc, but I can tell you that a lot of people don't go on dialysis at your level. I left it a little longer than most (probably too long) and didn't go on dialysis until my creatinine was at 10. What I would do now is start preparing. You don't want to go on with an emergency basis the way I did.
Personally I would go on peritoneal dialysis. It allows more freedom of time and diet. Many docs in the US don't recommend it, but it is very commonly used here in Canada (invented here too).
I am now 9 years post transplant and am doing well. I thought I was feeling well while on dialysis too but once I had the transplant, boy did I turn out to be wrong. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
