Dec 31, 2019 · Stage 3 Kidney Disease and Diet: What can I eat? in Kidney & Bladder

I don't see the post I wrote last week so I'll post it again. I got very depressed the past couple of months and did not stick to the diet totally.
I said I thought I had found a lump on my left side and it got so painful after having an x Ray that showed nothing. I was supposed to have an ultra sound on kidney and bladder and chest advised from New kidney Dr. Because I had such pain on left side I had to call an ambulance and they did all those tests at the hospital. It seems I was having muscle spasms. They gave me meds and now they are gone.
Now, the good news . The Dr. talked to me at the hospital and said, all your tests are normal. I said what about my kidneys. He said going off the Arthritis meds, there is no sign of kidney disease. They're normal. I couldn't believe it. He said over the years the Arthritis meds were causing my kidneys to shut down. Thank you Lord. I may be in pain without Arthritis meds and have to use my walker all the time
but it is worth it.
I pray for all of you suffering from this terrible disease and be sure to check your meds and what ones could be hurting your kidneys. I'm sure your Dr will. I am one of the lucky ones that the Dr. caught this before I got worse.
I will be checking in to see how everyone is doing and say prayers for all of you.

Thank you so much. I'm in a tiny town that has a very small hospial. They don't even deliver babies up ! so we have to drive a 100 miles
to get to our tests.
I like my Kidney Dr.very much.. He mostly talked too me about my medications and took me off my Arthritis medicine which he feels
caused my Kidney problems. This will cause me to have alo t of pain and make it hard to walk but he thinks my GRF might go from 35
to 55. Also I have to have Ultra Sound on Kidneys and Bladder and Blood Tests. He's very thourough.
He's upset with my PA that she has not hurried things along with my Kidneys. He also wants a bone density test done to see what kind of Arthritis I have. I didn't know there were two kinds with soft bones of disks and the kind that can break easily. I'm probably not saying this
right.
He also said I should be on vitamin D and Calcium. But wants to wait on blood work. He noticed I've lost 64 lbs and am now 160 lbs.
But still borderline obese. I told him it was because I didn't know what to eat. He said keep doing what I'm doing with no salt, although I'm not on such a strict diet. I have to do all this before before next appt. on Nov.19th. Guess that's all for now but he put me on pain pills
to help with Arthritis.

I sure will. I'm trying to relax and think positive. Thanks again for answering my questions. I'm seeing my PA the 24th so maybe by then,
she can find out results of lab work. I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow evening.

Thank you. Do they do blood work and urine tests that day? Can you find out what stage you're in while there?

I agree. Just some breakfasts that I can stomach. Tomorrow I go for my first appt. to the Kidney Dr. I have severe panic attacks and anxiety so I am a nervous wreck to see were I stand. Also I have found a lump on my left side between the ribs.It's started to really
bother me. Please wish me luck.

Thank you for your reply. I sure do need patients! I guess the best thing I need to do is wait and see what the Kidney Dr. says
And try and call down.

Thank you so much. It sounds like you've been through alo t and I'm glad your transplants have worked for you. Since I see the Kidney Dr. Next week, I'm very nervous. I'm hoping I'm not Stage 4. I haven't been on the diet too long but will be glad when I know where I am.

I sure miss Boysenberries, Blackberries and especially Strawberries.. And most Nuts.
I have always been a binge eater, if one is good, then ten more is better. This is a real challenge for me like probably everyone else. I did get a big shock tonight! I ate a big teaspoon of low fat plain yogurt.
I was in shock how awful it was! And I know why….no sugar. So I added pineapple and blueberries and got it down. Yes, this will be a challenge.
