Well I got some numbers back that threw me for a loop, a BIG loop. I am not surprised given my history of trying to be compliant. But my ALB/creatinine ratio was over 1,000. And my concentrated creatinine was over 800. That’s got to be well around 800-900% post normal. So what’s it all mean? CKD likely. CKD for those who don’t known the acronym is chronic kidney disease. It’s just another add-on to the list of complications I have from this disease:
- Bad eyes
So suffice to say, how am I coping? I’m not actually. I am scared s***less. Not out of the fact that this is my doing from years of thinking there was a river in Egypt. But out of the fact that the numbers mean my body is finally giving in and crying for intervention.
I do want to beat 61 (age that is). But the reality is I need to beat me.
I have decided to not only start working harder at this, I have also created a blog at Blogger.com called The Diabetic Napan (http://diabeticnapan.blogspot.com) where people can see my daily (or nearly daily) chronicle of my struggles, and hopefully successes.
I also will keep everyone here at TuD in touch as well and ask for your prayer and encouragement.
