I just got to stage 3b of CKD (IGA) (36 GFR). and also just became a dad for the 4th time. It is all sinking in and I am extremely depressed and anxious. I should be home with my new baby, other babies and happy wife but all I can do is cry... and I am not like that... ever... don’t think I have cried in 20 years!
I have changed my diet (plant based) and cut beer and started working out again. My GFR is 36 as of my last test in July. It was 31 in May... Can somebody tell me their GFR went up on here? I am looking at dialysis in less than 10 years at this rate.. I’m only 34 years old... who has been a stage three for a long period of time? Anybody improved?
I see people on YouTube and other sites say they raised their GFR as much as 20-30 points by eating right and exercising. Is this really possible?
Side note, I meat with my doc and dietician next week to go over labs I am doing tomorrow.
