Hi, my mother has a kidney function of 13 and is a diabetic with high blood pressure. Her blood work showed a drop in kidney function from 16-13 in one month. She was recently in the hospital due to low sodium but now her electrolytes are good. Family doctor told her that meats are very bad for her kidneys, so now she is scared to eat meats. If she made soups with meats and bones, but not eat the meats at all, would she be considered on high protein by just drinking the broth, and would that make her kidney function better or healthier but still getting protein? Family doctor told her if her blood pressure which is 160's comes down and become stable, that she is on her way to better kidney function. Is this true? I thought she would be on her way to dialysis soon. Is there really hope for her having kidney function this low at 13. She will be going for blood work again next week and says they will send me the results once they get them. I am getting nervous for mom because she really doesn't want dialysis. She is still feeling well and has great appetite and is 78 years old. She loves to eat, but I told her not to eat salt, so she is using spices and Mrs. Dash. Please I need some answers.
