Today I was in for a renal checkup. I do like my doctor, he tells it like it is. I like that! I did the ever-so-exciting 24hr urine collection and was told it was protein free. Excellent news!
BUT, I was then told that my HA1C could stand to be lower. I was proud of my 6.8% HA1C, but was told it needs to be lower. I was proud of my 113/68 blood pressure, but was told it was not consistently that low and needed to be closely monitored.
I will take all this advice and create positive changes in my lifestyle, but it was a lot of information to digest in one visit!
Bottom line, no protein in my urine :)
