Kidney Disease Reversal: Reverse Stage 5 KIDNEY FAILURE & regain kidney function to AVOID DIALYSIS


Episode 1: Kidney Disease Reversal: Reverse Stage 5 KIDNEY FAILURE & regain kidney function to AVOID DIALYSIS. Learn how I reversed my stage 5 kidney failure with diet & lifestyle changes to improve my kidney health and avoid the need for dialysis or a transplant. This is video #1 in my journey from GFR 8 to GFR 33 and still improving years later. When diagnosed with kidney failure we all hope to reverse kidney disease and avoid dialysis. For some, this can be done with diet and lifestyle changes when working with a renal dietitian and good doctors.

I'm sharing my kidney failure treatment without dialysis developed with my health care team after I was diagnosed with stage 5 kidney failure. It may be possible to reverse chronic kidney disease, increase your kidney function, slow down the progression of kidney disease, or avoid dialysis by following a similar strategy with your health care team. I have been able to reverse chronic kidney disease and regain my life and energy! While THERE IS NO CURE or any way to repair the physical damage, with the right lifestyle & diet changes it may be possible to reverse some of the damage caused to your kidneys and regain additional kidney function. My Nephrologist told me my kidneys were too damaged to reverse the damage, but with a healthy diet and lifestyle I was able to reverse kidney damage and regain kidney function. 1 in 10 people has kidney disease and 9 out of those 10 don't know it. Most people learn they have chronic kidney disease when they are stage 4 or 5 and it is critical that they go on a kidney disease diet (renal diet) right away to slow down their declining kidney function and start to improve their health and labs.

How to reduce the burden placed on your kidneys
The best CKD diet starts off with a strict limitation on phosphorous, the worst thing you can consume for your kidneys. The kidney diet also has low potassium, low sodium, the correct amount (and type) of protein, and the right amount of calcium. You will quickly find your bloodwork stabilize in the standard range and your kidney function increase with the right diet and lifestyle. This is measured through an increase in your GFR.

Kidney Health – When your kidneys are healthy, they remove waste and excess toxins from your blood. Kidney health is also vital in regulating blood pressure and building strong bones.

When you have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) your kidney disease directly impacts your kidney function, reducing how well your kidneys remove toxins and waste from your blood. People with kidney disease also have difficulty controlling their blood pressure since it is one of the functions of a healthy kidney.

Everyone with Chronic Kidney Disease should work with their doctor to customize their own strategy on how to reverse chronic kidney disease stage 5 based on their unique medical condition. It is critical to follow your doctor's instructions for the plan specific to your kidney disease. Your doctor may prescribe medications, a kidney diet, and set limits for your daily Phosphorous, Potassium, Sodium, Protein, Carbohydrates, and Calcium.

By not following your doctor's plan and eating a healthy kidney diet, you will eventually end up with end-stage renal failure, also known as stage 5 kidney disease or Kidney Failure. At that point, your kidney disease diet will become extremely strict, and you may need to consider dialysis to stay alive. Dialysis does not duplicate all of the kidney's functions, and it is tough on your body as it uses machines to detox your kidneys and removes waste and toxins from your blood. It should be your goal to avoid dialysis by working with your doctor to improve your kidney function.

To prevent Kidney failure, follow your kidney doctor and kidney dietician's recommended kidney diet. Also, understand that there currently is no cure for Kidney Disease. However, it is possible to improve your kidney function and increase your GFR through the proper kidney diet and treatment.
