Blood test done. Have incontinence, burning while urinating. On psychotropic medicines. Chronic kidney disease?

Hi I have a sister that I am a guardian over and she has had prior blood lab results of the following; GFR 60, High Carbon Dioxide levels at 32, Blood urea nitrogen high at 24, as well as low red blood cell and white blood cell counts. She reports of having incontinence, buring when she urines. She is on psychotropic meds. Could she be experiencing chronic kidney disease of some sort?

Nephrologist 's  Response
Thanks for the query.
You have not mentioned your sister's age. Also does she have a history of Diabetes or high blood pressure? Also what is her creatinine report?
A GFR of less than 60 for more than 3 months can be a sign of Chronic kidney disease.
A person suspected to have Chronic kidney disease needs to undergo further blood tests, urine exam and ultrasound exam of the kidneys and bladder to confirm the diagnosis and determine the cause.
Your sister needs to see a nephrologist.
Hope this helps
Good luck.
