New to the community. Just received DX of mild CKD this morning based on ultrasound results indicating tissue damage + drop from GFR of 63 to 57 over past 2 years. I am 60 years old. Good blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose levels. Fit. Have not used antiinflamatories very often. Don't smoke, eat much red meat, salt, or consume much alcohol. Haven't seen nephrologist yet but am mildly concerned because it doesn't seem like I have any of the risk factors or see obvious things to change aside from being more religious about hydration (must admit I have not been at all good about the latter hsitorically, but urine was ligt in color so wasn't worried). Suggestions for good sources of balanced information would be appreciated.
Thanks, and heart out to all those in worse position.
