My doctor really doesn’t say anything but that I should watch for kidney disease. He said to cut down on desserts and no wine. I don’t drink but I guess the blood test shows something. I do drink Kombucha Tea. I have quit drinking that. My creatine 1.12, BUN 24, glucose 125, alt 45. I have to say my doctor said very little but he has caused me to worry as I am my husband’s caretaker. Can you tell me just how bad my kidneys are?

You can estimate your eGFR at:
