  • Mood:

Creatinine

Email from the nephrologist today. After I spent 4 days of intense efforts at hydrating myself, the second blood draw showed that my creatinine level had not changed. I.e., it's still a lot higher than it was in August. So she's ordering more tests to see if I'm still dehydrated or if protein is leaking into my urine (proteinuria). Proteinuria would be non-good. I'm also not sure how I can get any more hydrated than I was on Tuesday without an intravenous drip.

Fun.
