Hi every one, i dong Blog very often, but here is a update on my CKD, condition after 5 years of learning and learning.
I have just visited my 3rd Nephrologist, i feel i have it right this time. I found you have to be able to communicate and feel at ease with your Dr. and i am there now. I did quite a bit of research on her and she is suppose to be one of the best in our area. My last Neph. would not utter a word, to me never checked to even see if i still had Kidneys. This one went over me from head to toe literately. Plus all the other things Blood Work , etc. i will go back in a month to see her, for i am off of a med and on a new one, . My BP has been very high so we are going to work on this as well as my heart rate was to high.
I am at 51% Kidneys working, YEA this is 3rd stage, they are 5 stages of Kidney Disease, and i am still 3rd stage. It takes a lot of hard work to do this but i believe Your Kidney Diet is so important in holding us back in this Disease. Usually we like to go forward in Kidney Disease. the higher you go up in level the better your Kidneys are working.
My phosphorus is high and has been for some time, I am on a binder and do have to watch my Phosphorus intake., Vitamin D is still low so i take 5000 IU a day. My Parathyroid level is up, but acceptable. I'm still anemic so will continue on iron supplement. All in all i feel very good about my visit with her
If you read this and have CKD please take care of you and your Kidneys. If you dont have CKD a simple blood test can tell if you have this disease It is another silent disease, so please be checked.
