@livinglifeodb Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Being diagnosed with chronic kidney disease can certainly send us into a tailspin, as you have experienced. I am glad to know your stage is 3A at this point, and now you have the opportunity to slow any progression.
As the article @donsunlover linked shows, it is important to consider the overall lab results, not necessarily specific values. Likewise, looking at trends in results is important, unless there is a dramatic change.
Now is the time to take control over your situation. Following a good moderate exercise plan, keeping stress levels at bay, and following a good renal diet, will all go a long way to slow progression of kidney disease. If your CKD is the result of high blood pressure, getting and keeping that under control is paramount! We have a few great threads in this group that talk about our diets and what works for people. Please take a look through them and see how you can fit that into your lifestyle! It's a balancing act, and we need to work at it, but the rewards are better health.
