I am unable to suggest a reason why your kidney function would decline. I do not recommend a low potassium diet or a low protein diet. 59 more words

I am a 65 year old female with one kidney. The second kidney was removed due to a car accident when I was 16. Prior to 2016, my GFR has been stable and in stage 4. From January 2016 through July 2017, the GFR on my remaining kidney dropped 6 points from 63 to 56. In July, after getting this information, I went on a low sodium, low potassium, low protein diet. In October 2017 my blood work was re-checked and my cholesterol jumped from 206 to 284 my BUN was 25, Creatinine was 1.1 and my GFR had dropped another 6 points to 50 which is stage 3. I am stunned at my readings and at a loss as to why my GFR has dropped 13 points in less than a year when they have been stable. My doctor is an internist and I wonder if these kind of changes would warrant a visit to a specialist or a renal dietitian. Thank you.
I am suffering from essential hypertension for more than 20 yrs (BP not more than 140/95 mmhg at first) and taking drugs for lowering BP like Dytide, Natrilix etc. I am taking Losartan potassium + Hydrochlorothiazide for last 15 years and BP is now more or less 130/85 mmhg, taking thyroxine sodium 75 mcg for last 6 months. I am suffering from Gilbert's syndrome from very beginning. My Creatinine is over 1 mg/dl for last 10 years. At last it is 1.25 mg/dl (now I am 46 yrs old) Indian, wt.69 kgs.FBS 89 PPBS 133 HbA1C is 6.1, Ca+ 10 mg/dL PO4 4 mg/dL, no protein, sugar, ketone bodies found in urine R/E. Potassium 4 mg/dL, Total cholesterol 195mg, LDL 110 mg, HDL 54 mg, SGPT 74 mg, SGOT 45 mg, Uric Acid 6.64 . GFR calculator shows eGFR is 62-74% which is type II CKD. But my Doctors of Kolkata, India say that no medicine is available for this stage, and continue all medicines as previous. Is it really CKD? May it rise further? What is latest medicine to roll back creatinine level to below 1mg/dL or to rise eGFR to above 90%? Please advise.
I was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease two years ago. I changed a recommended kidney health diet and light excercise. Lately I have been having pain in my kidneys and adrenal glands along with low energy levels. I have not had a check up since I was diagnosed. What should I do?

Ronald Jackson remember when people congregated in the smoking room at Toomey Abbott Towers, a public-housing high-rise in Syracuse. That ended in 2015, when the Syracuse Housing Authority enacted a smoke-free policy for its nine building complexes. 260 more words
Hi, do you have any website about having natural diet with kidney disease, especially juice treatment or herbal?? Thanks in advance.
Hi sir. I want you to know that I have one kidney from my childhood. I did my blood test a week ago and found that my overall result was fine but my GFR was 43 and my creatinine level was 1.5mg/dl. Now tell me is there any risk?? or it is normal and also guide me with a diet plan to reduce my creatinine level. Thank you so much.
You mention that you have a single kidney. It is unclear if this was from birth or you lost one of your kidneys in childhood. I am unable to make a specific diagnosis based on the information that you present. 78 more words
