I feel constanltly tired and have been getting sickness feelings just lately.
Every morning I feel like I have been on a bender the night before. I wish!
Also my skin itches like crazy all over.
My neph said he did not want me to have dialysis if at all possible and that he was putting me down for a kidney transplant. I was fine with that but now I am wondering if dilaysis would give me my life back.
How soon can you start of dialysis? I am back seeing neph in 2 weeks.
There is no need to panic..normal GFR level should be more than 15.
no need for dialsys at this stage...Just follow the low phosphate diet
Avoid colas, beer, sardines, eggs, certain cheeses, dairy products, liver, nuts, peanut butter, red meat, seafoods just to name a few
Just eat more fruits and veggies
Occasionaly, you can have some some cookies, feta cheese, grated paremesan cheese, pasta, noodles, popcorn, cereals even peanuts but limit then to just one to 1/4 servings just to be sure.
You will be good in no time...no need to do kidney transplant
Try to get a full body check up for creatinine, blood urea nitrogen, sodium, potassium, sodium, include phosporous too to see if it is going down after eating more fruits an veggies.
Good luck and hope you recover soon.
