Just a quick note to hopefully give a little hope. I have had CKD for about 8 years and have been watching my kidney function decline under the usual treatement regime. In April my blood test readings were way worse: creatinine 1.88, eGFR 29 and BUN 29. While searching for answers, I found Lee Hull's book, Stopping Kidney Disease. He recommends, and provides the scientific argument for, completely eliminating animal products from kidney patient diets. So, that's what I did -minus a couple servings of fish over the last 2.5 months, I've been following a Vegan diet. Just had a blood test on Friday and results came in today. My creatinine is 1.41, eGFR is 41 and BUN is 14!!!! My eGFR has not been in the 40's since 2014! I am thrilled!
My next step is to follow the diet plan that Mr. Hull describes in his book. I will keep you posted on the results.
