CKD pt + former Med Professional
I wish I’d known about this several years ago-it would have saved a few grey hairs. I’m 57, a former RN-Paramedic who had to leave Medical School in my final year due to growing health issues related to my genetic disorder, nail-patella syndrome. I (and mySon) were also born with just 1, affected kidney. It wasn’t until the last two years that the proteinuria and overall function began to decline. Because I’m not a transplant candidate, we’re keeping an extremely close eye on everything. Thank you for making this available-AND for everything else you guys do to help patients like myself!!
PS I sent the link to this app to my primary & nephro -neither of whom had been previously aware of it.
Use this app everyday. Only wish you had a Apple Watch companion.
Very handy, but there is a flaw that must be addressed. The race and sex fields change when they should not. Tap on “male” for example and tap on on it a second, third, fourth time. Why does it change back and forth and back and forth? Please fix that behavior. Thanks.
