I have stage 3 chronic kidney disease that developed as a complication of my spina bifida. As a result, I also have hypertension (I've had it since I was 6).
I can't do a low-carb diet, as my doctor says 50 to 55 percent or so of my diet should come from carbs and I should only be eating 15 to 20 percent protein. I'm fortunate that my kidney blood work is always pretty good, so I don't need to limit potassium or phosphorus at this time.
I'd love to hear tips and stories from anyone who has the same condition.
