GFR decreased, creatinine increased-what do you think?

Hi I have just had some results back but i dont know what to think to them:
-although some of them are still in range they are showing a trend-
-GFR was high at 89 (range 0-60) - now 75
-urea was going up 3 - 3.1 - 4.5 - 4.7 (range2.5-7.8) - now 2.8
-creatinine was going down - 87 - 85 - 79 (range 62-106) - now 91
-I know that they are in range but it is the trend that i am not sure of, is it ok fo creatinine to increase?
-do you think the reduction in GFR is normal?
-Is a low urea level indicative of anything?
please post back im despirate, thanks

Re: GFR decreased, creatinine increased-what do you think?

Hi Jen,

Found your post today and thought I would reply. I am waiting to see a nephrologist via Bupa ( 2 weeks time ). I had a cholesterol check which revealed that I have a declining GFR. Started this year at 61 and am now 57 and the GP is starting to talk about mild kidney abnormality. I am terrified. I have no pretein in my urine, am aged 53, creatinine is 90 ( I think, he was not keen for me to have the numbers ). He (GP) did not want to refer me, so I took bull by horns and asked for referral to BUPA. No-one seems remotely concerned, but the stuff I have read has frightened to wits out of me. I am not diabetic, am being treated for mild arrythmia ( sotalol ) and a few years ago had NSAIDS for frozen shoulder, but no history of cystitis out of the norm. But I read I may have damaged kidneys due to pain relief medication from years ago. I cant sleep, frightened to eat protein and am consuming gallons of water. Help. !!!
