I'm new to this forum so I'm going to try to explain this the best I can. I had some blood test done to check my liver and cholesterol. The docter sent me the results of the test and there were some abnormal results. My HGB and HCT and Abs Lymph Automated were low. Then I also notice there was a abnormal results on the GFR (59). So I went to kidney.org and checked it out and it tells me that I'm in stage 3 for chronic kidney disease, which is 30-59. I pluged my creatinine and other info and came up with the same info 59. The doctor never said anything about this to me, plus I found that this was on a proir test result. How concerned should I be about this?
