I haven't had the opportunity to even talk to someone else with CKD so it is all new territory for me. I was diagnosed with CKD some years ago and have been sitting at GFR 20 for a little over a year. My condition was apparently caused by hypertension which is now under control thanks to my specialist. My last blood test showed a drop to 18 and my creatinine is now 300. I just wonder with the blood pressure under control if anyone out there has been lucky enough to stabilise the condition. If so, did diet played a part or is it all one big mystery.
I have discovered my restless nights and twitching legs are eased dramatically when I don't eat meat for a few days. Problem is each time I do this I tend to lose weight.
Any words of encouragement would be gratefully received. I do love to lead an active life but my energy levels are pretty low these days. I just retired and I'm 65 years old.
best to all
