Second time around

I was "diagnosed" nearly 6 years ago. My eGFR was 48 and creatine was high. Went to nephrologist and they were not concerned at all. They said the usual things... drink more water, watch the salt, and avoid NSAIDs. She even increased my Lisinopril, which now my primary care doctor is telling me to stop until I see another nephrologist.

Will go next week. My numbers had dropped to 44 and potassium was slightly elevated. So is dropping 2 points in 6 years drastic? A few years ago I was told I could hover around these numbers forever with no ill effects. I'm 63 and otherwise healthy. I'm not overweight and I try to eat fish and veggies as much as I can. Just hoping I get good news next week. Thanks for reading.
