Has anyone had a kidney biopsy? I’m afraid but my dr wants me to have one. My creatine protein ratios? Are off the charts. But she said it could just be my diabetes 2 although it’s not that bad. She said it could be nothing or cancer.

      Get a 2nd opinion. The biopsy itself can create damage to the kidney and my nephrologist said there are other ways and they don’t like to do them if at all possible.

      Faith hope, I've never had a kidney biopsy but I just recently had my left kidney removed. It had a cancerous mass on it. They found it when I had a CT Scan for an unrelated problem. The pathology report was great. It said that the surgery alone gave me a 94% chance of a cure. My other kidney is doing well and is handling the extra workload well, despite my CKD.

      I have had 2 biopsy’s and they aren’t bad. They give u something to relax and I always had my dr put me 80% under. It does hurt afterward but it’s not horrible. If you don’t mind me asking what is ur creatine now?
