Getting to a diet that's beneficial to the kidney and lung

You don't know how hard that is! Or you do and I've just wasted a week! In the end I trawled the websites for don't eats and best foods listed them canceled out the donts on the dos and now the only thing left find recipes or just play around what's left.

You see I've concentrated on my ckd and never thought food can effect your lungs.

  • My advice would be to speak to a Renal Dietitian and keep well hydrated. As in kidney disease your lungs need protein and high quality calories to get the best of out out them. Since changing my diet and starting to exercise I have noticed a vast improvement.

  • Well I totally agree. I have usual interstitial pneumonia and this June 7th is my fourth anniversary of diagnosis. I thought I wasn't going to make it as last November a herbalist gave me some herbs to make into a drink for anxiety. Little did I know but they started to relax all my tension including my lung muscles, they also retained water! Three months of hell later I stopped taking them. Decided to stick to diet and exercise

  • I have some experience in Renal care. Before taking any over the counter or herbal remedies. Check with your pharmacist or GP. Normally these a not a problem but in people with chronic conditions a small change can have large consequences so better safe than sorry.

I feel that gerd has something to do with my lungs .. Plus asthma and gerd go hand in hand... I think mine came from my acid reflux ... Been wheat free two weeks the differents is unreal with my breathing ....
