Myasthenia gravis and kidney disease
I have myasthenia gravis and recent blood work showed some kidney issue - dr. mentioned stage 3 - would that come from myasthenia gravis? - the bun lever was 33.
Myasthenia gravis does not cause kidney disease. Your doctors should work to find another cause (diabetes, hypertension, etc.).
Hope this helps.
