I have CKD Stage 3a, would I benefit from a referral to a specialist now or should I wait longer?
Stage 3a CKD is normally managed in the primary care setting, (your GP practice) with regular blood tests to monitor your renal function, usually 6-12 monthly and as indicated if there is any changes in health. Monitoring is long term. You would normally be referred to a specialist by your GP if there are changes to your blood tests and your condition deteriorates. Hopefully this will help.
