A couple of weeks ago i had a letter from gps surgery asking me to go in for a routine blood test for ckd ,the nurse who does the bloods said it was a new screening they were doing so off i went,i had a letter this week asking me to see the doctor to discuss the results off i trot today to be confronted by your kidney function has dropped right off and we don't know why,so she has ordered lots more bloods to be done wants a water sample has asked for an urgent abdominal scan and is writing to rheumatology which i am to follow up with a phone call next week,she has also stopped my blood pressure meds as my pressure was on the low side,so I'm off for bloods tomorrow pocket duties please.

    Definitely in your pocket, mig. I hope all goes smoothly and this is found to be a minor blip. ((()))

    Thank-you all for your company it really does make a difference.I had 8 vials of blood taken the phlebotomist had to go in the back of my hand as i don't have very good veins and had to use a baby needle but she is very good and it hasn't bruised.I suppose if the humira is now affecting my bloods i can't complain as i have had nearly 3 excellent years but maybe I'm putting the cart before the horse so lets wait and see.Thanks again.

    I sincerely hope it isn't the humira because I know it has worked so well for you. As you say, let's not put the cart before the horse, I guess your results will take a little while to come back: have they advised you to stop the humira in the meantime? DD
