Hi everyone. I’m a new member who have recently been diagnosed with stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease ( CKD ) and besides prescribing Statins for my High Cholesterol (which is 5.5) my doctor will not offer any further help at this time. He says my Chronic Kidney Disease is not at an advanced stage for him to refer me to a Nephrologist and a Dietitian. My GFR is 45 and my Creatinine 111 and I really want to improve and prevent my CKD getting worse but I’m struggling to do this on my own.
I’m trying to do my own research but some of the information I’ve heard and read is contradicting. Can anyone recommend source of helpful information backed up by research and personal experience? Also, does anyone take and notice any improvement with supplements and herbs such as Co Enzyme Q10, Vitamin D, K2, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Nettle tea and
cinnamon? I am Vitamin D deficient so i’ve being taking 25mg daily for many years now. I’ve only recently found out that I need to take K2 with it. However, I’ve read that K2 clots the blood so I’ve NOT started taking it due to my family history of blood clots. Does anyone know If these supplements work? Thank you.
