Diabetes and the Kidneys

Going in for a Renal scan soon. I just had a full ultrasound and now the Doctor wants this. On the one hand I am relieved since I had a blood draw recently looking for Hep C and I thought the Ultrasound was for that too. No word on that but I think I would have heard something by now.

What might be the results of what is coming up.

Well, best thing you can do is call and bug the doc. Chances are the results are sitting on their desk. I know renal scans check how well your kidneys are functioning. So, both structural and functional abnormalities are what they’re looking for. Sorry, I don’t know what issues you’re having, but the best thing you could do is probably to call the doctor and get in their face about it.
