I am a chronic kidney disease patient on stage 3 of it. I've been living with the CKD for possibly years now, which I was just diagnosed in April this year. The cause or causes of my kidney disease may be unknown. I've learned a lot about CKD but I also want to know some more things. Okay, so how is serum creatinine obtained? Is it measured over something, when blood tests are done? Do kidney diseases like kidney cancer, iGa nephropathy, nephrotic syndrome and nephritis also cause chronic kidney disease or can do so? I've heard now that we only need one kidney when most of us have two, how is it true that we really only need one kidney? When was the first kidney transplant performed? No matter the stage of CKD, is the diet changing depending on everyone's needs on the disease and what stage they're each in? And, are some people more or less restricted on the diet regardless of CKD stage, as someone on stage 4 may be less restrictive than someone on stage 2 sometimes? I will ask more questions later if I have any later too. I want to know more on kidneys and kidney disease!
