Please help me, my 54 year old husband has just been diagnosed with CKD stage 4, his eGFR was 22. We found out by accident, he had no symptoms and has always been well. We think he has had this for a while and is currently on steroids to try to reduce the inflammation in his kidneys. Last blood test we had showed no improvement in his eGFR (9 days after starting the steroids)
We have changed our diet, low potassium and low salt and to do everything we can to show this disease down.
I am so depressed, I can’t think of any positives about the future. I think our lives have finished.
I worry about our family, money, quality of life.
Please could anyone advise me how their cases, if they are well on dialysis (don’t think we are at that stage yet, thankfully)
I would appreciate any advice on coping
