In order to make a diagnosis of chronic kidney disease (CKD) you need an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) to be less than 60 milliliters per minute per 1.73 meters squared for greater than 3 months. I do recommend that you have urine testing for blood, protein and infection as this could lead to a diagnosis of CKD as well. With your family history of CKD, you are at increased risk, but treatment needs to be focused on the underlying CKD. You should continue to consult with your physician and have a specific diagnosis of your CKD. The specific diagnosis will lead to proper treatment of the underlying CKD.
