@richardkeenam I asked my doctor if he thought it would help if I drank more water and cut back on my protein (I'm a vegetarian but get plenty of protein from veggie combos) and he said it wouldn't hurt to try and might help. I read somewhere that 50 Gms protein or less daily for Stage 3 CKD.

As we know nothing hurts to try it would have been so nice to hear the word Yes!I myself th ave stage3 I look for some kind of hope.my doctor said its alot they don't know about the kidneys..so as he said nothing hurts to try….do you have high cholesterol?..I need all the help I can get in that area too.
@bdade59 I have high cholesterol also, I take Lipitor and try to watch fats and to eat fiber (from fruits and veggies but not whole grains) so it's moderately well managed. On top of everything else, I also have diabetes and in many ways a diabetic diet conflicts with a renal diet. Whole grains are recommended on a diabetic diet but to be avoided on a renal diet. What a challenge! My dr. said me watching potassium, phosphorus and sodium has taken some strain off my remaining kidney and my GFR went from 28 to 37 in a few months but we did have to increase my insulin to maintain blood sugar control.
