G'day all, Just yesterday i was given the news that with my current rate of deterioration of kidney function i will be needing dialysis in one to two years and subsequently will be needing a donor.Very sorry to sound like i'm dumping on you all but i just need some clarity. I have also been on another caveman type diet for six months now,i have lost 6-7 kg but never had too much to lose anyway.Funny thing though,i'm to have lost a lot of back ache and joint soreness which is fantastic!! Whilst eating this way i have been eating cream ,milk[not all the time]dark chocolate to quench sweet cravings,butter and occasionly potatoes. I work outdoors and physically and in a cold winter climate[Christchurch,nz] so very hard to feel warm while eating salad!!!!! I have asked the above question ,before my of late diagnosis,from my other sourse of dietry info but to no avail???? Regards slightly worried, Chris

I had the same problem. My kidney function was dropping like a rock. Less protein and more carbs brought my kidney function back inline.
