I just found out I have ckd 3, I'm trying to raise it and don't know how. I took my first blood test May 5th and my blood test was egfr was 58. Yesterday I had another blood test with Wel-HealthTeam.
I've been taken Kidney cleanse since June hoping my test come out better.
Yes it is possible with suitable diet and wellbeing changes eg my mum (age 66) increased hers from 36 to 76 in ~5y after a nephrectomy. Noting your comment "don't know how", you could engage a naturopathic nutritionist and you can private message me for further details.
Read Lee Hull. Stopping Kidney Disease. He also has a cookbook with same name. He has been a kidney patient for years and can educate all who want to know and do the latest in kidney treatmet. That's how I learned also as a patient who recently started to find out how to increase egfr. Be patient and lenient with yourself. And good luck. Sally
I think you meant to reply to neidrum? Ive got Lee Hull book but unread yet. Can you share your own improvements?
Gladly but too soon to have much info. First and almost immediately, my LDL is in normal range. This, for me, is an accoplishment. Otherwise, am waiting for latest lab results. I'm, aiming for once a month testing. Meanwhile, do read Lee Hull, not the basics book, the other one. If you don't have it by all means get it. And READ IT. He has soooo much experience and bravery. Don't count on your so called general practitioners until after you read. Then you'll have a better grasp. Sally
Don't worry, we never count on any medics including GPs and mum's nephro! They've done nothing to help her CKD it's all DIY. And not interested in her proteinuria.
Plan to read the book in future but probably only if)when mum needs to consider VLPD. We are keeping it in reserve for the proteinuria whilst balancing vs her muscle loss
