I am a 70 year old man and I was admitted into the hospital March 28 because I was in renal failure. At that time my BUNN was 123, Creatinine 5.98 and GFR 8. Meanwhile as you can see from results below, it wasn't the only this wrong. They said it was acute renal failure and I should just be patient for numbers to get better. Here are all of my results now and not one doctor can give me answers as to why this is all happening .I reviewed all of my blood results and all of my bloods work has been bad since 2013. The kidney failure and results have me questioning more and wanting answers. They just want to monitor to see if they get better.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
The laboratory results are consistent with monoclonal gammopathy of free kappa chain variety with renal failure. Consult oncologist for further management.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
