Dr. Robert: The most important figures
to f/u in ADPKD management are function and Volume of the kidneys.
To see that, We’re going to get a blood test and
Ms. Marian (46 / F): Okay. Doc.
Seven days later...
Dr. Robert: Your kidneys are not bad. eGFR is 78 (mL / min / 1.73 m2). And the size is 14cm. There has been no significant change so far…. so go home…and please take a lot of water... and...
Ms. Marian: Ah yes… Wait.. Is it LEFT side? or RIGHT side?
Dr. Robert: Oh Let me see.. LEFT side~ :)
Ms. Marian: How about the right side?
Dr. Robert: Well… uh… Wait.. Let me see… about 16cm.
Ms. Marian: Ah yes… Is it good?
Dr. Robert: Hmm… Neither good nor bad. As I told you, the kidney function is still not bad yet, see you next time. :)
Ms. Marian: Ah… Yeah… Okay.
