Kidney biopsy????

Hi, I just got a called that I need a kidney biopsy cause my creatine went up to 2.8 although my tacrolimus is low and potassium went down. I am so tired of having my creatine int he 2's all the time and it not going down at all, I don't know what all this means. Anyone has had issues with creatine like this and needed a biopsy?

  • I had to have a biopsy in January. The results showed that my kidney just didn't really like the tacrolimus. Of course, they still have me on it but my creatine is 1.4 now. Not sure shyyours is so high. 

    • How high was your creatinine before the biopsy?
