I was diagonised with fsgs last year and at that time my serum creatinine was 2 and my urine protein was around 6000mg .
I was on 80mg prednisone for 6 months and started tapering off at around january 09.
Every month first week I'll go for my blood work.When I had my blood work done the first week of this month (june) the results were pretty shocking. My serum creatinine had gone up to 2.7 (usually it remains at 2) and urine protein was 500mg. I was so worried but my neph asked me not to and do the blood work again around June 3rd week. Today I got my blood work results that I gave on june 3rd week. I was really hoping to see my serum creatinine go back to 2. But it was still 2.7.My neph said the antibiotic sulfameth that I am taking along with prednisone could be the reason for my elevated serum creatinine levels. So, he advised me to stop taking the antibiotics for 15 days and do the blood work once again. Not to mention he asked me not to worry. How can I not worry?
Anyone else experienced this kind of situation?? Please share your thoughts.
By the way these are the medicines I am currently taking -
