Hi, I went to dietitian (advised by my doctor) 3 days after had my biopsy done (still waiting for the result). She said that I should only have to limit my salt intake to max 6mg (2400mg sodium)/day and only one source of protein for every meal (either natto-japanese soybeans-, 70-80 gr fish, or 90-100 gr). Even she didn't mention that I have to do really strict protein intake (like only several mg/ Kg of weight) since I'm still young (22) and need protein to for muscle, she said. As for now I don't have any restriction for potassium and phosporus since both are normal (from labs examination). Overall, the only things that she warns me about are to avoid fizzy drinks, pre-cooked foods (nuggets, sausages, bacons, etc), and don't use too many salt (I never use it to cook my own foods lol). she said that I can even have yakiniku (japanese-style-beef barbeque) but only if I kind of really wanting it (which I suppose like once for 2-3 months) and should eat it in moderation.
My question is, does anyone here has any experience on having only "normal" diet after they're being diagnosed with CKD?
Is it okay to do just that ? since I feel that I just have to believe her (well, japanese are reliable people, aren't they?) and she knew my labs result as well as (should be) communicating it with my doctor.
P.S. I communicate with my doctor and dietitian through friends that can speak japanese since they can't speak any english at all
