I do NOT see any coverage of this condition on your website. Diabetics should be aware of this possibility if diabetes is not controlled. I have been in stage 3-4 since march or so after about two years of uncontrolled or poorly controlled diabetes. The best result I had since August is 5.0 on the egfr, an estimate that was designed for normal people no more than age 65., based on a blood sample.

There are a few discussions about this topic. I know, I am a dialysis tech and have answered some ?'s here. You could also start something up, like you are doing now!

Thanks Mickey; This area is not well known or covered as I far as I have seen since this spring.

This is true. Some of the links to discussions on the bottoms of the page are older. One was from '09!! It is unfortunate because kidney disease will just come out of nowhere and hit ya! You can lose 75% of your kidney function before you even know you are in trouble! That's scary!

If you go to the National Kidney Foundation website, they have lots of information, articles and recipes there. It is a great place to start. Good Luck. Blessings, Mickey
