Want to hear from others who have Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

Posted by anet @anet, Oct 21, 2019

My husband who is 75 is in stage 4 kidney disease according to his gfr. His last Gfr was 27. That sounds terrible to me, but his nephrologist says he is stable. He is not diabetic. His creatinine is 3.2, albumin 4.1. Phosphorus, sodium, calcium, potassium are all normal. His blood pressure is controlled by medication. He exercises by walking one and a half miles every day. He has two heart stents and takes cholesterol medicine. He has shortness of breath on occasion, but still does all of his normal activities like light yard work, fishing, dining out, going to church activities. I do think he sits too much, but try not to nag. He is not good about eating healthy, but is getting better. Maybe I am just worrying too much. Would like to hear from others in this stage of kidney disease.

Yes, I moved from stage 4 to stage 3 and I attribute it to prayer by my church and a kindney suppliment. I am speculating the suppliment helped my kidneys function at their maximum. i was getting prepped to go into dialysis but my doctor has moved me back to "stable" and changed my appointments to every 4 months for a checkup. See my earlier posts for the kidney cleanse. I've had two nearly identical tests with creatinine at 2.2 and 2.4 from a progression to 3.1.

Are you referring to the kidney supplement by Synergetic?
