Hello, I have just been diagnosed with CKD3 and its totally freaked me out. I am 54 and up to now have been really healthy with good blood pressure. I dont drink very often and try to stick to a low-fat diet and don't take loads of pain-killers. I don't do excercise and do have a sweet tooth. I can't understand how I now have this. It has been suggested I start to take statins. Do others take statins and can anyone advise which foods I can eat to maybe improve my levels? Thanks for any advice.
