Hi everyone! My son is 8 months old and was born with only 1 functioning kidney and the functioning one has hydronephrosis. He is on similac pm 60/40 (low potassium formula) and on low potassium diet. His potassium has been climbing slowly over the last few months. I’m so terrified for the future and having a possibly rebellious boy how doesn’t follow the diet. He has also been going through bouts of constipation which I’m thinking is not helping his potassium to decrease. How old are your kids with kidney disease? Is it as hard as I’m imagining? I’m sure every kid is different in their disease and personality but I guess I’m just trying to predict the future in hopes it will help me feel better about his life.
