My name is Andrew, just was told yesterday that I am in Stage 3 of CKD!! What a shock, initial reaction was, ok, what is that? And how many stages are there? Didn't realize at the moment that it was a serious disease. Been doing a lot of research on my own today, learning what to do and not to do. Not sure how to feel about this. My girlfriend's dad is in Stage 5, and thankfully she has knowledge on this. I have my ultrasound scheduled for Mon the 21st to find out how bad it is, blood and urine results showed Stage 3.
I have a few questions:
I love coffee, do I have to give it completely up? Decaf ok?
I also love steak, do I have to give it up as well?
I'm an addict for ice cream too.
Any additional information for this newbie would be appreciated
