Hello, i'm new here so thought i'd mention a little about myself. I'm ashamed to say i've been overweight for many years (have a very sweet tooth) and have taken tablets for high blood pressure and high cholesterol for many years. I'm a carer for my daughter and also now my husband since he had a knee operation which went wrong.
I live quite a stressful life and have been suffering from anxiety too as i've been feeling unwell (palpitations, numbness, feeling tired etc) for awhile, so went to doctor who gave me form for another blood test. (A year ago my blood test had revealed my kidneys weren't functioning 100%. I was told to have 6 monthly checks and as the doctor didn't seem concerned i didn't think too much about it.)
Last Thursday was told doctor wants to see me re. latest blood test. I was told i have stage 3 CKD. The doctor said to eat a balanced diet and come back in 6 months. He said it can't get better and next stage would be under the hospital.
I got home and started reading up on it as it has left me feeling shocked and worried about the future of my family should anything happen to me. Is there a special diet sheet that tells me foods/drinks that are safe, and ones to avoid. Is there anything else i could/should be doing that'll help (i started dieting about 6 weeks ago).
Thanks in advance for any help, and sorry for long post
