Foods to eat to keep creatinine level down

@bdade59 I have high cholesterol also, I take Lipitor and try to watch fats and to eat fiber (from fruits and veggies but not whole grains) so it's moderately well managed. On top of everything else, I also have diabetes and in many ways a diabetic diet conflicts with a renal diet. Whole grains are recommended on a diabetic diet but to be avoided on a renal diet. What a challenge! My dr. said me watching potassium, phosphorus and sodium has taken some strain off my remaining kidney and my GFR went from 28 to 37 in a few months but we did have to increase my insulin to maintain blood sugar control.

An update to an earlier post: after flu/cold and hospitalization in Dec, GFR tanked again, lower than it had last year when I had the flu then also. (Yes, I have a flu shot every year, go figure.) I have a neph appointment next week to re-do labs to see if GFR has improved any and to discuss options just in case. Sign me Disappointed Kamama94.
