[IP] kidney again

Hi Alicia,
I also just found out last year "04( I think around April)  that I was
functioning @ 50%.  My foot doctor (he's the greatest for info) explained to
me that after 43 yrs being a diabetic, I should be functioning @13-10%(in
other words dialysis) and that even non- diabetics do not function @ 100%!
As we age, we all lose some percentage.  As for diet this is all I know so
far:  Stay away from sodium (salt), potassium, phosphorus, protein(milk,
cheeses) and B12.  Here is the website that I looked up.  Hope it helps.  I
didn't mind missing out on the sugars too much, but boy pleese don't take
away the salt too! LOL   >:(
