It has been one year since I first saw my renal dietician and met with the nephrologist. She said back then to prepare for dialysis within six months. I had been progressively declining monthly. Went from stage 3 to 4 within a short time.
I am so thrilled to report my labs today from the last three months were wonderful. Improvement across the board. GFR up one point. Maybe not a huge amount but it so much better than down. Creatinine down just a tiny bit. Iron, hemocrit and hemoglobin all improved to a "normal level." Potassium and phosphorus declined slightly but still at a high normal. White blood count down also. Glucose levels are normal and have been now for over 6 months. I am even cutting down on my diabetic medications. Lost 38 pounds (and if you add the pounds I have gained and lost again, its a whole lot more) Feeling really good. So my kidney friendly diet works. Just sharing a victory.
Thanks to everyone here who has been so supportive.
