Did another mini-blood test to see how things are going. I was especially curious as my blood pressure has been fairly low lately (without medication) and so I thought (hoped) that might things were improving in the kidney department.
Unfortunately it was not the case and curiously the results came back with EXACTLY the same numbers as 6 weeks ago:
Serum Creatinine 2.4 mg/dL > (normal: 0.8 - 1.5 mg/dL)
Blood Urea Nitrogen 11 mg/dL (normal: 9 -20 mg/dL)
Although it's disappointing not to see ANY improvement after so many lifestyle changes (diet and less work hours), I have to admit that I do feel much healthier for them and so should feel grateful rather than cheated... on other hand, maybe it means that indulging in some of the pizza I crave from time to time isn't going to make anything worse!
