Suffer from CKD

Last updated: April 2023

I suffer from chronic kidney disease (CKD) for the past 10 years and I'm just now trying to get my kidney numbers out of good normal level. I have been hospitalized because my kidney levels were high because my potassium levels were high. I try not to eat too much potassium. I have been thinking about becoming a vegetarian, but I love meat and that will not work for me.

Do you have a story about life with chronic kidney disease to share too?
