My friend has stage 4 chronic kidney disease (CKD). How are you getting your protein needs met? Animal or plant based protein? Is any one here taking the protein supplements specifically designed for CKD? How is your dietary and supplement approach working for you? Have your labs stabilized, improved, or worsened over time? What I'm trying to figure out is how to get adequate protein of 50 g/day doing the keto diet without causing more damage to the kidneys. My friend has type 2 diabetes, began injecting insulin 20 years ago, needs to gain better control of her glucose levels, and needs to lose weight to qualify for a kidney transplant. Any information would be most appreciated. Thanks! Edited to add: If you are diagnosed with CKD or are knowledgeable about CKD, its diet and supplements, I'd love to hear from you here or privately. I'm still learning and need your help.
