Hello, I'm new here and have multiple diet issues. I am 48 yrs old and have been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. I am also struggling with with cholesterol issues and of course, weight. At 5'3" i weigh 160. my dr would like to see me lose 15 pounds, i would prefer to lose 30 or 35. I also suffer from hypothyroid problems (we're just starting to work with that), and hypertension which is what we think caused the CKD. So I need to figure out a plan that utilizes the following guidelines:
Low sat fat/ cholesterol to address the cholesterol problem
Low sodium to address the hypertension
Low phosphorous/ high potassium for the kidneys
I am allowed to eat bad carbs because the kidneys don't have to work as hard, but I also know the pitfalls of this because of the weight. This is one of my bigger problems because my husband is diabetic and is supposed to eat whole grains etc which I cannot have. I need all the help I can get!
