There are figures for required minimums and that sort of thing, but my experience is that everyone is different and processes food in their own way and with their own level of efficiency. EGFR is an estimate of your kidneys efficiency. not an absolute, although it may be the best we have. Nine years of dealing with my ESRD has lead me to say that it's a trial and error process. Make changes in your diet, see what your labs say and then make revisions based on your labs.

Thank you

Everything you said is true. My problem is l have not been able to get my Dr. to even tell me anything about having CKD stage 3a. Over 10 years ago my doctor then said l had CKD 1. And told my sister and I there was nothing wrong with my kidneys after saying l have CKD stage 2. I then changed my doctor. After a year with that doctor he told me l had CKD stage 3a. I am 68 years old , l understand your kidneys slow down. But why all the lies. Is it not nothing to care about? My Daddy past 7 years ago from CKD.
