This is not a urology problem, it is a nephrology problem.

I am board certified in internal medicine.

We cover neophrology, urology, and all adult specialties.

This is bad, pure and simple.

By the time you see an elevated creatinine , if it stays there, you have 50% kidney damage.

You need to see a board certified internist, or nephrologist right away.
