    Hi everyone. I just found out that I have stage 3 kidney disease. I am 60 year old female that has already been disgnosed with Parkinsons Disease. What can I expect from this? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    I have been caring for my husband for thirty years, seventeen of those years he has been on hemodialysis. I have learned everyone is different but those who do well are usually proactive. Most important is to learn the kidney diet. Find the foods you love on it and think, "I can have and really like .. . ." Meet people to form a mutual support system. Know that you are Not alone. Know that many living with CKD never go on dialysis. Taking good care off yourself is not a guarantee but is absolutely necessary.
    You are not alone. Please take a deep breath and smile. I am in kidney failure and 72.
