BK Status: Holding Steady

Just back from the clinic. This morning's lab results are very consistent with the results a couple of days ago. Creatinine is 2.6 today versus 2.7. All other numbers are very consistent. Red blood count and hemoglobin are still just a hair low, just as they have been for the last month.

The action plan for now is just to hold steady. The thinking is that if the creatinine level holds, we can concentrate on controlling the virus.

So I'll continue to stay hydrated and keep my fingers crossed and we'll do it all over again next week. Blood draw next Monday at Baylor to check the serum BKV count and follow up appointment at the clinic next Wednesday to check results.

Until then, have a great week!


  1. I'm also a PKD patient. I know someday, I will reach the stage when I may also undergo dialysis and transplant. I hope I can draw strength from your experience and learn from your blog. Wishing you the best.

  2. Keep us posted, Dave. xxoomm
