My saga is rather involved started in early 80’s. I believe at that time I was misdiagnosed with autoimmune hemolytic anemia and treated with a splenectomy and massive doses of prednisone. The prednisone regimen lasted for about 10 yrs. I believe my original illness was actually malaria. I migrated to the US in the 80’s from South America and the city I moved did not have a migrant population so I surmised malaria was not even an idea…however here we are. I think the corticosteroids damaged my kidneys leading to nephritis. I understand that aging changes athletic performance and I accept that. I’m just trying to stay fit ✌🏾

You did not say how long you have had kidney disease or what stage. Have you seen a nephrologist? Does he/she agree with your assessment? Kidney damage can "sometimes" be reversed, chronic cannot. From the beginning of this year, I have worked with an acupuncturist weekly who brought me from Stage 4 to Stage 3A, but she also has a PhD in Immunology. The point being, it may take some help to stay fit.
