Thank you. I have made homemade Tortillas that requires butter instead of lard. I've been wanting to make them with no salt butter. So I think I will try this for my husband.

Aug 25, 2019 · Stage 3 Kidney Disease and Diet: What can I eat? in Kidney & Bladder

My husband's kidneys are funtioning at37%. We found out the day his Kidneys was functioning at 37% in Jun that they had been at 31% in Dec. 2018. VA didn't say anything about him being at 31% which is almost at stage 4. So I have been trying to find a good diet for him. He loves his salt. So its very hard to keep that away from him. Plus Potassium. I let him once a week have whatever he wants. He has proteins in his urine. He's had 2 UTIs in 6 months time. VA clinic don't know how to read the Lab Reports. First UTI landed him in the hospital. Second one I found out and took him to an Urologist. Wednesday he has an lazor surgery on his Prostate. For 9 years he has been asking for the VA to check his Prostate. All they do is Medicate any problem but never tried to cure anything.
They won't let him go outside for anything. They have funds for the Outside (Choice Program) but its always broke fur to they use the funds for Bonuses, Raises and Promotions. Obama used it when he first got it up and running to help the Refugees and Illegals.
I have been trying to do my best to find a good diet. They all contradict each other. You can't really do it alone. You need a dietitian or a nutritionist. The VA didn't recommend one and we didn't know anything about it until recently. He doesn't have another appointment until Dec. 5/2019. With kidney disease and UTIs go hand and hand. You need to be seen every 3 months. Not 6-7 months.

Sounds kind of like me. I don't know how long I've had CKD. I go to the VA. I had Salmonella back in Oct 2018. I finally ended up in the hospital on Nov. 28 2018 with an UTI. My primary doctor had no idea what was wrong with me.
She noticed my Iron and Vitamin D going down a couple of years ago. I am 72 years old. She seen protein in my Urine in Nov. 2018 and didn't know what to do. WBC said clumps in Urine. Which means there's an infection. In May another Doctor said I had 37% Kidney function. Again Urine was filed with WBC and again no mention of UTI. VA don't know what they are doing.
