A Kidney Diet & Lifestyle Changes that work
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a condition characterized by a gradual loss of kidney function over time. 30 million American adults have CKD and millions of others are at increased risk. That is 1 out of every 10 Americans - shocking! To make matters even worst, only about 10% of those with CKD know it - the other 90% are unaware.
On November 12, 2017, a distracted driver ran an intersection and slammed her vehicle into the drivers' side of mine. Airbags deployed and my vehicle was totaled. Over the next year, I saw my Primary Care Physician and multiple Chiropractors helped with the pain and discomfort in my back. I took Advil for pain during that year on a daily basis, along with Advil PM at night to help me sleep.
On November 16, 2018, I was admitted to the ICU for a week due to extremely high blood pressure, blurred vision, extreme weakness and inability to keep food or water down. It was discovered that my Kidney's had been damaged from all of the Ibuprophen over the previous year. My GFR was 13% and the Nephrologist told me to prepare for dialysis and to look at getting on the kidney transplant waiting list. My life was shattered - my way of life was changed forever. Would I be able to work, how would I afford my new house and other living costs, would my kids grow up with a dad?
I decided to buck the trend of preparing for the end - I was going to fight Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and win! I researched kidney treatments and kidney diets from all around the world. I emailed and called doctors and researchers in Japan, Korea, Australia, Germany, the UK, Canada, and the U.S. I altered my kidney diet and added a long list of supplements based on what I had found online and learned from others. Over the next 9 weeks, my kidneys drastically improved. I am no longer looking at needing dialysis or a transplant - my kidneys have improved from Stage 5 to almost Stage 3b (27%) - again, in just the first 9 weeks! This is all thanks to my kidney diet and the lifestyle changes I have made.
I created this website to help and inspire others to fight back against CKD. You can not cure it, but you MAY be able to greatly slow it down or even reverse it through following a kidney diet like me and making a few simple lifestyle changes. Use this information to talk to your doctor and create your own strategy to beat CKD.
