I know we normally talk a lot about PCR, FISH, and blood counts but I thought I would change things up a bit. Has anyone seen higher Creatinine Serum levels after being on G or one of the other TKIs for a long time? I've been PCRU for about 15 months now but my latest blood work has seen my Creatinine Serum level rise from a 1.3 average to 1.7. What's interesting is my Creatinine BUN level is still well within the normal range. So I guess if the darn Leukemia doesn't get me, my kidney's will shutdown instead.
It's always something...
Anyway, my Onc seems to think giving up coffee, tea, and booze along with drinking more water will hopefully bring the levels back down to normal range. the sacrifices never seem to end..
