Hypochondriasis: I commend you for your insight being Hypochondriac about getting CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) even though RFT (Creatinine, NA, K), and urine analysis are Normal. Feeling “always dehydrated” ,.while drinking 2 liter water indicates marked anxiety, rationalization and misinterpretation of Normal Kidneys.
