don't understand why docs do blood tests often but don't do yearly scans. think you've got to look at the organ as well as examine blood tests. also most nephrologists tell you nothing about diet. you're really on your own. mayo is good source of information. you just have to keep searching. nephrologists need to be more pro-patient.just waiting for kidney function to worsen isn't the answer. i really don't understand the nephrology attitude. doesn't seem that doctors are actively working to find cure or viable treatment.
what you put into your body can help or hinder you.
I totally agree about Nephrologist. In my more than 30 years with CKD the most anyone said about diet was ‘limit sodium’. Even a few renal dietician’s don’t fully help. The scans have been random and slowly I literally lost a kidney(atrophy) not understanding why. On my own through research I decided to eliminate all animal protein because it’s hard for the low functioning kidney to process.I continue to hope this helps. All my other doctors support this Not the kidney doc. They never studied nutrition nor do most follow recent data( if it’s not proven)!
