I was diagnosed with stage 3 kidney disease one year ago. I see my nephrologist every 6 months. In the last 4 months my GFR has declined over 11 points so now I am at the bottom of stage 3. I have altered my diet a lot eliminating bread products chocolate, I have eliminated many of my normal things in addition to reading labels to be carefully to avoid hidden sodium , in the last year. So now do I give up sugar and peanut butter and oranges to add to my list of no no foods.. I will drink more water but am feeling a bit depressed that my dietary changes that have done little to stop the progression of this disease.
