Addison's can mimic renal disease so be sure as to when the labs were drawn.
Also usu 2 weeks you may start to get peach fuzz type growth. Find out
what the sodium and potassium were, and if you could be looking at a problem
there. Was just the one gland rem'd or both? Addison's only if both or if
the right temporarily became nonfunctional, it should restart, if this is
possible again you may mimic renal disease. Just be sure and retest. Good
Luck and all the best.
