Do you live with any other health conditions in addition to CKD?

Many people living with chronic kidney disease (CKD) also live with other health conditions. What other health conditions do you (or your loved one) live with? Were they diagnosed before or after CKD? How has it been managing multiple conditions? Please share your experiences with others!
