It has been very helpful reading that I am not alone. I just went to the nephrologists last week and was told I have stage 3 kidney disease.
I also have type-2 diabetes, congestive heart and high blood pressure. The doctor changed my meds and put me on lasix and an ace inhibitor.
All she said was to watch the potassium intake. I am going for a ultrasound in a couple of days.
Is it inevitable that I will need to be on dialysis or need a transplant? Is there a timeline? How long until stage 5?
Also, is it normal to be extremely tired all the time? I am only 47 and have no energy.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
