Challenging in 400: characters! My first question, why do you know your GFR? estimated GFR from serum creatinine? It is actually not too uncommon for people to have reflux and irritable bowel at the same time..both dysfunctions of the GI system.Would be uncommon for symptoms of GERD to be so severe as to cause anorexia and weight loss. Then, why low GFR? This can only be sorted out by detailed eval in person by Doc!
