Dr wants me to do Creatnine/GFR and BUN but he wants me to drink 1 litter water b4 test. Why the water? Can water mask abnormal results 4 early CKD ?

It is important to follow pre-test instructions. ...Read more

You need to sit down with a clinician to review your tests in light of your overall personal & family medical history, physical findings, & health goals. Next steps include further tests, & watch & wait. Hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
