    Angry Nausea and Insomnia

    In early February 2021 I began feeling unwell. I visited my primary physician and some blood was drawn and tested. My GFR was flagged as “L” with a value of 81. I googled “Glomerular Filtration Rate” which indicated I have early stage kidney disease. Other readings flagged were Sodium 134, Anion Gap 9 which were just under the low limit.

    I have made dietary changes which included “Kidney Friendly Foods” No more frozen dinners, snacks or anything with high levels of Sodium, Protein, etc., Now mostly fruits, vegetables, and healthy shakes.

    My symptoms have since worsened and include poor appetite, low energy nausea and insomnia; I don’t sleep more than 4 hours a night. Each day I take 4mg of tablet of Ondansetron to control the nausea and it helps somewhat.

    Since February I have had additional blood draws with similar results. A urine test indicated nothing abnormal other than some bacteria.

    I am a 79 year old white male and both my primary Dr and a nephrologist told me my test results are normal for someone my age and are nothing to worry about. I have Barrett’s Esophagus and my primary Dr suggests my issues may be due to that.

    I have a kidney ultrasound scheduled later this month.

    Meanwhile, daily life is an ordeal. Can anyone else relate to this?
