    Thank you for the information, Lady Mary! I will check out the esrd for their resources. I was only recently diagnosed with the CKD after my kidney blood work had been off for the last several months and my PCP referred me to a Kidney specialist. He found a cyst on my kidney and ordered more labwork and an MRI. He is re-checking me in mid-December and will have a Vitamin D level done then too. I do take Vitamin D3 supplements - 5000 mg and I think the doctor is worried about the amount too. I have a really good book that was recommended by someone on the Managing Diabetes Group - it had all sorts of recipes in it that were very low carb for brownies and other things too. I did read the book by Dr. Bernstein but Wow! it is so strict! I guess a lot of people swear by it though. I like the low carb approach because I am allowed to eat the fats so it doesn't feel like I am being deprived. One of my favorite foods is SF gelatin with lite whipped topping on it - I have that for breakfast sometimes! lol
    I also have to adjust my short acting insulin almost every day and my Lantus is at 56 right now because my morning blood sugars were running high when I was sich and someone said bumping it up a little might help and my doctor agreed. Now it is running about 70 fasting so I may have to go back to 54. Always a challenge, isn't it? emoticon

    i believe there is a copy of that diet in the library function on the esrd (endstage renal disease team) you might join that as there is a lot of onfo to come out of that and people dealing with chronic kidney disease..the team is not just endstage but has an awesome library that covers just about anything and they are quick to let you know what works for them.. it has more what you ar3e looking for although all the other teams can help also i am happy to have reversed the disease for now but it is chronic and i reamin mostly on the diet..the nephrologist released me from it but i only added a few things like milk and tomatoes and bananas to it to sort of balance things a little your vitamin d levels must be checked on that diet as you can quickly be come deficient in it but it is easily done and the end results are that you live better as for the protein well i don't have much of it..and the carbs well that and fat was really all that was left to eat so my carbs are covered with insulin..however with time my insulin has been being reduced and we are still trying to figure that one out for sure as now i am off the basal (1 uunit and the numbers drop out withon 115 minutes and the short acting use (carbs to units) changes daily and is dropping also..no answers for that yet except several years ago i had a seizure and the result is autonomic neuropathy and so i have a service dog that let's me know when the blood sugars drop out now so sometimes it seems endless but all the work you put into it will make it easier and you will definitely feel better..i am always available for questions on sparkmail or my page or anywhere else
