I am 38 years old and my EFGR is currently 29.
Over the last year I have been suffering from extremely itchy lower limbs. I haven't mentioned this to my consultant as I thought I was being a hypochondriac but I have now noticed some of you are having the same problem.
Is there anything I can do???
Does removing certain foods from your diet help?
Would medication help?
I would rather not take medication unless totally neseccary as I don't want to over work the old kidneys.
I am probably about one and a half stones over my boxing weight and am trying to lose a bit.
I have always been told that there is nothing I can do about diet apart from lowering salt intake, surely there are some food that are positive for the kidneys and some we should avoid?
The only thing I have been able to do is drink lots of water and never add salt to my food.....am I missing a trick.....could I do more to protect the kidneys????
Thanks in advance,
