➑️ Stage 2 Mild CKD (GFR = 60-89 mL/min)
➑️ Stage 3 A Moderate CKD (GFR = 45-59 mL/min)
➑️ Stage 3 B Moderate CKD (GFR = 30-44 mL/min)

Regrann from @kidneyspa - Limiting the amount of phosphorus in your diet may help slow the progression of kidney disease. Phosphorus is a substance that occurs naturally in many of the foods we eat and when consumed in moderation, is a necessary component of our diet. However, when used as a preservative, the body cannot adapt to it when consumed in large quantities.Β 
While normal kidneys can filter phosphorus out of the body without too much difficulty, kidney disease hinders this process. There are foods containing more phosphorus than others like seeds, cheese, fish, shellfish, nuts, pork, beef, low fat dairy, soya foods, beans and lentils. - #regrann #phosphorus #renaldiet #renalfailure #ckd #esrd #dialysiskeepsmealive #donatelife #kidneyfailureawareness #organdonation #lentils #soya #shellfish

Regrann from @kidneyspa - Vegetables lose potassium when in contact with water. Soak the vegetables for about 12 to 24 hours prior to consumption and it can remove about 1/3 of their potassium content; it is important to change the water at least twice during this period. Frozen vegetables also have less potassium. - #regrann #potassium #renaldiet #renalfailure #veggies #vegetables #ckd #esrd #dialysis #kidneywarriorstt #dialysiskeepsmealive #donatelife #shareyourspare #savealife

Via @strongkidneydiseasesurvivor - It's kidney awareness month! There are many kidney disease warriors waiting for a kidney wanting a second chance at a longer life. Can you please think about being a donor., It would be greatly appreciated.

Regrann from @foodiequeenj - It's national kidney Awareness Month! Stop with all the salt, you are damaging your kidneys. High blood pressure is one of the main causes for kidney failure. Having to do dialysis is not fun it's a life time disease once you go into full blown kidney failure. A kidney transplant is not a cure you'll need to take medicine for life to keep the transplant working that's why it's not a cure. Save yourself now take care of your kidneys and put the salt down.There are more people dying waiting on a transplant that has kidney failure than those who have cancer. Something to think about πŸ€”

Maybe you drank a little too much this weekend or you ate something you probably shouldn't be eating. Don't be too hard on yourself about it, you're doing the best that you can.

About 60-70% of your body weight is made up of water, and every part of your body needs it to function properly. Water helps the kidneys remove wastes from your blood in the form of urine. Water also helps keep your blood vessels open so that blood can travel freely to your kidneys, and deliver essential nutrients to them. But if you become dehydrated, then it is more difficult for this delivery system to work. Mild dehydration can make you feel tired, and can impair normal bodily functions. Severe dehydration can lead to kidney damage, so it is important to drink enough when you work or exercise very hard, and especially in warm and humid weather. However those already on dialysis should reduce the amount of fluid ingested daily.

Dialysis is not a miracle cure, it only does a fraction of the job that our actual kidneys do on a daily basis. Many people seem to believe once you start dialysis, in a couple of months or a few years at the most you'll no longer be in Renal Failure. That couldn't be any further from the truth. Dialysis is basically life support. It keeps up alive for as long as possible in hopes that we get a transplant before its too late. So become a hero today and #ShareYourSpare.

Battling Kidney Failure is no easy job. Those of you that are now starting your JOURNEY needs to know that it gets worse before it gets better. When you start dialysis it will take some time for your body to adjust to treatment. In that time you may still feel sickly and weak but stick with it...I promise you IT WILL GET BETTER. Remember your body is not accustomed to the treatment as yet so at first you're gonna feel extra tired and you're going to blame it on dialysis, you're going to want to skip sessions and cut down on your time but try to avoid doing that. The longer you dialyze the cleaner your blood is going to be. #dialysis #dialysissupport #dialysiskeepsmealive #renalfailure #kidneywarriorstt #chronicillness #invisibleillness #shareyourspare #donatelife #organdonation #life #StayingAlive #kidneytransplant #love #joy #esrd #fighter #warrior #trinidad #tobago #islandliving

When you have dialysis on Tuesday but you don't want to go because you drank a little too much over the weekend and you're afraid your nurse will lecture you about ignoring your fluid restrictions.

This is my ever so talented and handsome nephew Alejandro Lopez (he forced me to write that) he's an aspiring author, poet, pretty boy all round genius and future donor (yep he forced me to write that too)
It amazes me that at his age he understands the seriousness of Kidney Failure and wants to do his part to help. He was 16 when I was first diagnosed with #ESRD and he told me he would help in anyway that he can and help he did. Many times when being strong took too much strength out of me he was there to make me feel better and he still does that to this day.
There were many nights when I was in the hospital last year that he stayed up all night with me on the phone because I was worried about my health and couldn't sleep. Im blessed to have such an awesome nephew and I wish the rest of you going through #Ckd has someone like him in your corner. If not then feel free to borrow him lol I won't mind. Follow and send him a message if you ever need someone to talk to. Follow his poetry account that he just started @that_poetic_dude_
His personal account is @prodigy._.lopez

Thank you for listening (reading) to me vent a bit this morning. It was just what I needed. I immediately felt better. Hubby said we should wait until the weather is a bit warmer. He's right about that. Not sure what type of pup I want. A cuddling type for sure. I'm wearing my cute puppy socks.

I braided my hair and I liked how I looked. So no wig or makeup today- cause I look good without

Wednesday's socks - My Stop making sense socks. My life has kind of stopped making sense....in a way. It's hard to explain. I'm sure part of it is the time of year (Seasonal Affect Disorder is rough) but I think another part is I want a vacation. A vacation from dialysis. I've been doing it for 9 yrs now. I think a month off would be nice. But I know there is no vacation from dialysis except death and I do NOT want that at all. I want grandbabies and puppies. That's it since none of my boys are even dating I need a puppy. I love how talking things out clears your mind.
A puppy would be the perfect substitute for a vacay! What do you think hon?

My dialysis nurse is the sweetest. When I was talking to her about wanting a vacation from dialysis the first thing she said was "What can I do to make this feel more like a vacation? "
I can't think of a thing she could do to make my treatments any nicer.
I feel better alreadyπŸ––πŸ––πŸ––πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ #DialysisKeepsMeAlive

A huge shout out and thank you to @sixsoxsilver !!! I enter their sock contest last month....but I didn't win. They sent me a message saying that although I didn't win they like what I am doing with my page and to please go to their website and pick any pair of socks. This is my pick. #Canadian socks! I love our awesome neighbors to the north we are so lucky to have them.

Monday was a #paisley day.
I'm wearing @happysocks. My tunic and pants are from Zulilly by Azalea they are the most comfortable clothes. Perfect for dialysis. My sister surprised me with a visit yesterday. (She called me last week and told me, but my mind remembered it as next week lol) She took me to breakfast and to hobby lobby. Then she stayed and visited with me and took me to dialysis. She also made the paisley ribbon #bracelet I bought it to make it, but truthfully I would have never gotten around to it. It took us a llooonnnnngggg time to get over childhood dramas but I'm glad we did because I love having a sister! She's even going to knit me a cool pair of socks! She is an expert knitter and quilter so I am lucky. I have many of her beautiful works of art.
