I am 66. In June 2020, I was diagnosed with stage 3a CKD with a GFR of 53. I began the CKD diet but easily got tired of constantly looking up foods for their protein K+ and phos levels. So I began eating a CKD-appropriate dinner only, so that I could be sure to stay under the recommended levels without all the calculations. I usually had an apple or other CKD recommended fruit around 1:00pm.
My recent blood analysis showed my GFR went from 53 to 58 in just 6 months. I also was able to lose 40 lbs. I’m now at a normal weight. I didn’t realize I was doing intermittent fasting, but I guess I was. With my recent experience, I highly recommend it. I’m looking forward to the next blood draw.
