I am so glad you replied. No it is not for the weak. LOL, many times when I ate the wrong foods, I thought I was dying.

It is amazing how sandwhich meat can effect us, and simple things like fast food. Let me tell you, the simple, fast things are what made me the sickest.

You have to eat healthy, otherwise, suffer the sickness.

Thank you!

Keep your chin high and your smile bright!

Welcome Diane, we are a small team, but we love each other and try to help as much as possible. I was diagnosed in 2008, a shock also , high blood pressure , never had it before and then wow it went up so high high i thought stroke time. I am in Stage 3, and holding, first time i went to renal Dr. my kidneys were working at 26%, and in a year i brought it up to 52%. How? Learning as much as i could from dr. web, tideway, research, and people on SP. I changed my way of life, I only do organic foods,take vitamins, supplements, herbs, holistic,I'm still learning. I go to the dr. the 23 of this month i hope i have good news. I am on blood pressure meds 3 i hate to say, watch my sodium ,etc. I belong to this great team Herbs, Supplements, and Vitamins, our leader EJ is great and has a vast knowledge of these things, we have several people on this team who have kidney disease. EJ has studied these things for 20 years she tells you she is not a dr.to check with your dr. if you think there might be something you like. I do this and also will do research on a subject i am interested in.Just thought i would mentioned this team. Jeanla who is our leader on this team is great, she also has great knowledge on CKD. and has some good information for us.I know you will like this team. By the way that's a sad way to have to lose weight isnt it, being sick. CKD is not for sissys, we have to be strong and take control of our health emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Caroline

Hello SparkPeople, my name is Diane and I am new to this team, however, very excited to be here.

Back in 2008, I went for a job physical and they told me my blood pressure was very high. That scared me; I decided to go to my doctor. At that time I was 244lbs, was scared with high BP, doctor ran blood work and a week later they wanted to see me.

During that week I noticed the pounds dropping and I thought they were going to say that I was diabetic. But no, they told me I was in kidney failure stage 4. They got me into see a specialist in record time and he confirmed what they said.

I began getting very ill, very ill and was dropping weight like crazy.

Long story short, today I am in stage 4 and my red blood cells are too large and too many. However, I did drop down to 174 from the effects of the toxins building and I have learned better eating habits. Now I want to be healthier to help my kidneys and I here!!

Keep your chin high and your smile bright,

Diane
