Hi. I was diagnosed last August and it was shocking to me as I don't have high blood pressure or diabetes and am fairly healthy. It might be the prescription nsaids and/or prilosec or that I wasn't drinking any water due to overactive bladder. Anyway, I've been on the renal diet plus playing Pickleball 3x a week for fun and exercise and my egfr went from 47 to 52. I'm 67 and do not want to do dialysis. It is very scary to me.
