2 questions Doctor. 1 . I live in Cape Coral, Florida is there a free screening nearer to me other than Orlando? my GFR is 49 happened suddenly I have never ever had this on my blood work report. I am 73 with high blood pressure. I really do not want to go to a specialist. I had ARDS 16 years ago and I am thinking that illness effected my kidneys. I was in the hospital 3 1/2 months in a coma for 9 weeks. At that time my kidneys were ready to shut down. It was a miracle that one day my kidneys were going and two days later they were normal. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

A list of upcoming screening events can be found on our web site at: https://www.kidney.org/news/keephealthy/KEEPHealthyEvents
