Wow…your post got me thinking…BP out of control is bad on kidneys…so is my still high BP, now with “flutters”, causing MORE damage to my kidneys than taking lisp…which BTW kept my BP and heart very steady….interesting! Thanks for the post…I’ll let u know what my nep says after Christmas.

Stage 4… I was taken off lisinporil about 8 months ago by my nep. I didn’t see much improvements in my labs after stopping, but, apparently it isn’t a good drug for kidneys.. My last lab (10/18)Crea 1.85, GFR 26.87. Improved a little after starting renal diet (9/18 Crea 1.96, GFR 25)…I go back 12/26 so I’m praying my diet changes will at least hold me at this level….my NA, K, P, Glucose & calcium were all within boundaries. Most were right in middle…dang Creatinine and GFR my issues. My GP had to increase my beta blocker because my BP just wouldn’t go down. I’m still “feeling” problems with my heart so, we will adddress when I see him. I’m concerned I’ll hv a darn heart attach before my kidneys fail…after reading, I know that’s like a 90% chance. Good luck and let’s keep posting….thank you!

Nov 11, 2018 · Confused About Diet for Stage 3 or 4 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) in Kidney & Bladder

If you’re asking me…moved to PNW from Arkansas in ‘79 with husband and daughter. Retired in ‘09….from managing hospital gift shop and Starbucks. I started seeing a nephrologist a couple of years ago. He was concerned but didn’t suggest any changes….then early this year I hit stage 4 and here I am…My diet has been horrible for several years….I just got sick of cooking so was living off fast food…junk. Every now and then I’d cook a roast with carrrots and potatoes to make myself feel better….I miss that roast with carrots and potatoes but…that’s life now! lol Heading to Savannah for Thanksgiving with family! I’m thinking…..how will I manage my food on the road! I want to be kind to my kidneys so…. I’ll keep reading and taking notes! Thanks for letting me join….it’s nice to know I’m not alone!
