Hi everyone, I've just found this forum as last week had an unexpected doctors visit at home and was admitted to hospital with high potassium levels, i had gone to the Docs as woke up one morning really dizzy which I hadn't linked to my kidneys I have ckd stage 3 for 13 years (that I know of as never knew when I was stage 1 or 2) but have always been told that this couldn't be helped by diet.... which I now believe to be incorrect. I'm trying to search for low potassium diet plans but its a minefield with low potassium foods turning into high ones depending on how much is consumed, one website even suggested only eating half a pear, I can understand not eating a 200g bar or diary milk but half a pear!!! Anyway I think its time I educated myself instead of relying on the Dr's and meeting people in the same boat as me. Would love to hear your stories of how you have handled having ckd and especially if its possible to stop from going from stage 3 to 4. Thanks guys x
