Just learned I have stage 3 ckd less than 2 weeks ago. Have not seen nephrologist yet. Based on everything I've read online I have cut out all dairy & processed food. Eating small amounts 5-6x day. Increasing water. No sodium or refined sugar. A tad bit of molasses on Ezekiel bread. Lost 6 lbs & my blood pressure has come down after many years of being high (avg WAS 148/82) No more swelling in ankles. I miss the comfort foods like ice cream but feel good about the rapid changes I've made. Really miss my big mug of coffee but willing to sacrifice for improvement of kidney function. Sorry I don't have any "numbers" to share but will post when I do. Love reading all the info here. Thanks... Btw, I'm 77 years old.
