Jean, you have prior blood test results that prove you have CKD - did your doc not believe any of them?? How frustrating!

I dont take hormones either, and sleeping pills drag me out in the day. but lately i am dragged out, so blood work might help, me find out the problem. I do know i am anemic and this Neph has never done any thing about it.
Jen dont feel bad about the Dr. you know how you feel and yu need to be confortable with your Dr. My problem is im having some not so good feelings about my Nephrologist. I might look into finding a new one. We will just keep on keeping on.

My urologist sent me to the nephrologist. I am thankful for that. If not for him, I never would have known.

Caroline the other thing that impacts my sleeping - lack of hormones. I will not take a supplement as I was on them for a few years but had chest discomfort. They increase the risk for breast cancer,ect.

I hope you feel better!

It is good to read that so many of you are doing well.

I had a bad bout last week - for two days I just felt ill. I could not get on top of being tired - but again like Caroline - I had a stressful week! I slept when I needed to - even if it was during the day. I just could not function.

Keep loving those kidneys team.

An update too on my doctor situation - I am looking for a NEW doc again - this one will not let me see my neph. and thinks that I do not have kidney disease... even though my creatinine numbers have increased - from .08 to .10.

He will not test my kidney function every three months and I have thyroid disease - my thyroid is LOW and my blood pressure is LOW and he said - UP your meds two days a month and I will see you in 6 months! UMMM NO - my blood work needs to be done in 6 weeks when you change my meds.

I am fighting the good fight and finding a new doc. My third in a year - atleast my original doc did my blood work and was doing a good job of trying to stay on top of my health issues - this guy wont even try to stay on top of it all.

Stress does funny things to a healthy body, let alone one that is compromised.

Sleep is a real problem for me too. I go through stages where I can't sleep for a while then other times I want to sleep forever. LOL.

Even though there are a lot of foods I cannot eat I am still happy with the commitment I have made regarding my health.

I have only 12% of my kidneys left but I feel better than I have for years. So I am putting this down to the changes in my lifestyle I am now living.

Caroline make an appointment with your Neph.as soon as possible. I do know what stress can do to your kidneys. My kidneys deteriorated in January with all the stress I want through then but I did get some of this function back after this. I do try not to get stressed now.

Every thing all of you have said. The change in life style is the pitts, Constantly having to watch every thing from meds, food exercise, weight gain or loss, . Me i am so extremely tired and weak. I believe some of it is from the Fibro. And like Jen sleeping is a problem for me at night, and that for sure is not good for us. And for some reason lately i have really been worried about my Kidney's, if its intution i think maybe i better call my Neph. To much stress in my life at the moment. My gallbladder has been acting up, my neck hurting, i had acid reflux very bad but a few years ago i had those whever you call them in your throat, i cant spell it, stretched and every thing has been fine until about 3 weeks ago, so i know its stress. But one must keep on keeping on.

Hey Claire what did you say LOL

cant eat some foods because of the kidney and gout problems. Usually tiredness but at present this is not an issue.
Maintaining everything from protein, sodium, phosphate and potassium. Always have to be so aware of everything I am doing.

I am taking a medicine that helps but has weight gain as a side effect. I try to watch what I eat but have gained a little anyway.

I have to watch myself because of the foods....I can't eat some things because it contributes
to the kidney problems, some other things I cannot have because of the gout, and I am
trying desperately to lose weight because of the history of heart issues in our family.....

so I am constantly trying to monitor everything............and my meds don't help for the high
blood pressure either....

If you always do what you've always done,
You'll always be who you've always been!!!!!!

Other health issues? Medicines? trauma? rest? exercise? nutrition?

for me it is sleep and days of rest. I am so very tired.
