I have a diagnosis of CKD, based on a history of chronic hematuria since 1980. I am on two medications HCTZ and Avapro for hypertension which is well controlled. My GSR is in the range of 70-85. I'm of Indo-Persian descent. I have never had any diagnostic tests done for ruling out CKD. There is no family history of kidney disease. my parents and grandparents lived into their nineties. I am in my sixties. Is it likely I may have IGA nephropathy simply based on the hematuria? My nephrologist says with careful monitoring I'll be alright. I am a semi vegetarian x 19 years. I eat eggs 2 x a week and occasionally fish/seafood. I feel pretty healthy
