  • Confused

    I am 39 years old and have stage 1 ckd. I am type ii diabetic. My gfr has been 90 consistently for several years' with small protein leakage. In April it unexpected dropped to 56. My dr thought it was probably an aberration but we retested out of caution. 5 weeks later it was 108 and in July it was 118. In that time I also lost 50 pounds and lowered my a1c to 6.2 from 7.5. My question is what could cause my gfr to drop so low and then return to normal? Dehydration, I had been sick an vomiting the week before. Bad test? I had been a diet soda drinker and now have mostly eliminated. Any advice is welcome. I get retested in November.
