Title: information for people with chronic kidney disease
Post by: Dragonfly on September 17, 2017, 11:11:08 am
Hi everyone,
I don't know if anyone is suffering from chronic kidney disease. I don't know if this is relevant to this forum. I believe I developed chronic kidney disease due to the use of lithium for 30 years. (I am now off of it) This may not be true for other people who are on lithium. I am also an insulin dependent diabetic type II which has a great effect on the kidneys.

Thank you Paul for the websites that you provided for information on chronic kidney disease. I contacted the kidney foundation and they sent me two excellent spiral bound books - one living with reduced kidney function and two living with kidney failure. The foundation also mentioned a forum that I could join. I have joined. There is also a website for eating right for the kidneys.  This information has been very helpful to me.
