I've seen you recommend the DASH diet for stage 3 and to see a nephrologist when the GFR is less than 30. Are there types of CRD, such as CRD caused by premature birth or LBW, in which treatment from a specialist would be beneficial to preserve kidney function in the earlier stages of CRD? (Guessing that could be my cause of lowered GFR.) I don't have HBP or diabetes, but do have diagnosis of Osteoporisis, and did have Hyperparathyroidism. Also, low platelets. I don't want to wait til GFR is less than 30, then find out there was an intervention I should have had. Are my concerns valid, or doesn't the reason for decreased functioning matter? If I should try to get a diagnosis, should I go to a Nephrologist or some other type?
My GFR is 56 and Creatinine 1.01. I had a class with kidney smart and got information. So I asked my Doctor that I was worried and what should I do to prevent this from getting worst? The doctor said don't worry about it. Yes, I worry because I do not want to wait until it is too late. He gave me no diet. I, on my own self, started dropping various food like potatoes, sodas, corn. At present, I make myself a cabbage, apple, red bell pepper, celery, cranberry, garlic, onion salad with zero cal Italian dressing is this good or bad. Where can I find a list of the right food to eat?
I am a strong proponent of the DASH diet. I recommend you follow a low salt diet and use less than 2000 milligrams of sodium per day. 15 more words
