I am a 48 year old very active health conscious woman. I found out I had CKD almost a year ago. Still not sure what's causing it. Have an appointment with a new Dr. Feb 12th. My Gfr was pretty steady at 44 and the last 3 months has been declining 4 points per month. It's 32 as of my last test. For the last 5 years I have eaten a mostly whole food, vegan, gluten free diet for other health reasons. I excercise regularly also. In your very knowledgable experiences, has this happened to anyone? Does it slow down or is going to keep on heading south. At this rate I only have 8 months left of kidney function. I drink very rarely and did have some wine a couple days before my blood work. Has anyone noticed alcohol having an effect on your GFR? I would appreciate any advice and experiences shared.
