Kidney test results

My wife recently had blood and urine test done. The test were ordered by her doctor. We received a call telling us to schedule a visit with a kidney specialist. (We have not received the test results yet.) All the doctor said to us was that her results were abnormal for someone her age. we are very concerned about what the problem might be. I am hoping it is something we can fix with diet or medication. Can someone give us some info on where to start. Thank You

I'm sorry, but without further information and test results, there isn't anything that can be said. It could be anything from high blood pressure (don't know if that's involved) to some sort of genetic issue. Post back when you get results and/or see the doc.

Most kidney issues are not fixable, but many are treatable and you can maintain function for a very long time.
