Just received my lab results. BUN 25, and Creatine 2.2. About 18 months ago my creatine was 1.5 and BUN was within normal range, but high end. Dr. said last year my kidneys were functioning at 40%. Did a bio, found an adnormality, but it was not cancerous. Any ideas as to what is going on? I go back to the doctor in 2 weeks for a bilateral retrograde, KUB, Abd 1V (whatever all that means). I have been able to visibally see blood in my urine for the past 4 weeks.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate whether you have active medical problems, how long you have been HIV positive, your stage of disease (CD4 count), and whether you are on HIV or other kinds of meds.

do people with hiv or aids have a higher risk of contacting fungal diseases?
Is my situation normal?
