Kidney issues can be tricky, nutrition recommendations depend on what stage kidney disease you are currently experiencing. I suggest see a dietitian in your area that specializing in kidney disease. They will be able to help you get the right eating plan in place. Here is a great resource to find local dietitians. http://www.eatright.org/programs/rdnfinder/
slightly high calcium level and little high creatine level, bun normal in diabetes 2. Is something I wrote, it is in the beginning section of the forum, I think too much protein may not be good for kidneys and my bun level went from 33 to 20 which is normal since I have very little desire for meat and chicken ever since I got the nutribullet. I think drinking a lot of water helps. Since my calcium level is high I guess I will have to use water and not almond milk, but just a little bit of yogurt. I have been taking vitamins that have calcium and I have to cut them out also. I am just making some comments about my own experience.
It is funny but when I take the drug lisinopril which is supposed to be good for the kidneys, my kidneys always get worse. So they finally cut out the lisinopril and my kidneys are getting better. My creatine level runs between 1.3 and 2 is the highest, but now it is going down. What I am trying to say is one never knows the cause and it may not be a bad idea to change medicines and see if that works. AFter more than 25 years of diabetes one is not supposed to get kidney trouble but I have been getting it.
