More Lab Reports

I hope posts like this continue to appear, but less and less frequently.

Went to the clinic bright and early this morning for my three month check-up, and everything was great! Cholesterol, sugar, red blood count, potassium, etc etc etc, all normal. Creatinine continues to be out of normal for anyone but me. It was down from last time (3.3 from 3.6) but the 3.6 was up from where it's been over the last year. So, normal for ME!

Note to anyone who has not read the blog. My transplanted kidney was damaged during my struggles with the dreaded BK Virus. Whether the damage is due to inflammation from the virus or from the neurotoxic drugs used to fight the virus is not clear, but whatever, the damage has been done. The good news is that the kidney function has been stable for sometime.

I was to have had the BK serum level checked, but lost my prescription and did not have the test performed. So I will get that taken care of next Monday on my day off. I'll post the results when I have them.

My next checkup will be in four months, that's March. 2013. That will be the day for my annual Glofil test which uses radioactive tracers to get an accurate measure of how well and kidney is clearing toxins.

Happy Holidays to All!!!
