No, I’m looking for neither diagnosis nor confirmation thereof, OK?
New doc, new suspicions, new tests, etc.
Among the tests: Ultrasonic scan of kidneys. Technicion seemed to spend a lot more time on the right than the left.
Result: the right is damaged - it sonded like the Dr. was saying the lower section had been partially “erased”.
Createnine (sp)-eliminatio test.
Am now told the kidney damage is confirmed, and the kidney damage is the cause of my (chronic) anemia.
First: hypertension can damage kidneys. duh. but dissolve them? Is this posssible? If so, I would have expected (gray hair, osteoarthritis, yep, old) to have heard of that bit of medical bizarreness.
Second: Damaged kidney/reduced renal function causes anemia?!? Can anyone please explain the mechanism of THAT bit of both bizarre and scary biology?
Agsin, not looking for diagnosis, but explanation…
