kidney gfr levels bun creat slightly up

87 year old has kidney gfr of 26. bun is 27 creat 1.7. does not need dialysis. just sent us home. maintain low salt diet, bp is good in control and other blood work and urine normal levels. the kidney dr said do not need dialysis but the sheet i received from the visit stated stage 4 chronic kidney disease. this was not mentioned to us. the only change he made was lasix up to 80 mg. stay on all other heart meds and inhalers............i am upset. they aren't worried but i am. i would appreciate some support. i have none and certainly don't receive it from drs. my family dr nurse when i told her i was worried she stated talk to kidney dr. i feel no support. thank you for all replies.
