I have high blood pressure and high cholesterol too.  Speak to your kidney specialist about seeing a dietitian. They can help. In you can research a high blood pressure diet even though you don’t have high blood pressure it will help protect the kidney. Cut salt and processed food out of your diet. That was hard for me cause I love pizza. Also do not take any Gatorade or energy drinks. No drugs with ephedrine or anti inflammatories in them. That was hard for me as well cause I have a touch of arthritis in bothe my knees from my time in the military.

Hi Stefpanie 

I was diagnosed in the fall of 2001. I started dialysis on 21 April 2016. The dialysis thing hit really sudden. The kidney specialist told me it was coming and then on my next visit 3 months later he saw me and I told him all the problems I was having and he said I needed dialysis now. Three days later I was on hemodialysis. I did switch to peritoneal dialysis. If I had it to do all over again I would have seen the doctor sooner and just started with peritoneal dialysis. 

If you got any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Tom
