GFR is 39 with grovers disease
Hello - my mom is 82 years old and has had a terribly itchy rash for the last year and a half.  This itch has been accompanied by nausea for the last four months.  After a colonocsopy and a full gynecological cancer exam (both negative), we went to a nephrologist today who ran no tests, did not even palpate her and told her to get off the celexa (20mg) she has been on  for about three months and change her BP medication (as issue which took us 1.5 years to get under contro)l.  He completely ignored the diagnosis of grovers disease on her back or the other horrible rashes she has on her face, legs and stomach and dismissed her nausea as a reaction to celexa.  Has anyone had any similar experiences or advice?  We have another nephrologist appt with a new doc next week, but really could use ANY help!

Thanks,
Mary

Hi,
How is your mom? What other diagnostic tests were done?  How was her check-up with the other nephrologist? The presence of other co-morbid conditions such as her Grovers disease should also be managed but with her present GFR, it is important that careful monitoring of  her kidney function as well as strict control of her blood pressure is done. This is to avoid further reduction of GFR which could lead to kidney failure. Drinking plenty of fluids and eating healthy may also help. Take care and best regards.
