Blood Test for September 2014

This blood test was done six months after the previous one, the longest gap in between tests and routine medical reviews for a while now. Serum creatinine level hit its highest at 337 mmol/L. It was 331 mmol/L in September last year and went down to 299 mmol/L in March this year.

This blood test shows that my kidneys are functioning at 18% of normal capacity. Looking at the history and progression of my kidney disease, the doctor was not too concerned with the results yet as the serum creatinine levels are fluctuating within a narrow range.

I am now edging closer to needing dialysis. I have already decided on the treatment option should that day come, which I hope never. I think am prepared for it but I wonder how my emotional state will be when I hit the threshold.
