I was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 1965, hospitalized a total of about 10 years and for 2 weeks this year. I was given lithium and had the wrong dosage. I have been battling chronic kidney disease (CKD) since 1984. My GFR levels went to 26 for first time. It's back up to 40 GFR this week. Now I have gout, Parkinson's disease from psychiatric medication taken since 1965/heart failure, half colon removed from colon cancer. I was just reading my notebooks. I was a good writer for a while, but now cannot read. So I do crosswords, started solitaire, and try to walk.
Do you have chronic kidney disease without any symptoms?
