HI PeterPan60,

How are you? Do you have other co-morbid conditions such as diabetes or hypertension? Regarding the diet, I suggest you take up a low protein diet since consuming too much protein (over 2.0 g/kg/d) can become a stressful stimulus for the kidney. This is even more of a concern as we get older and our organs are less efficient and effective, and also with your family history of CKD.  

Consulting a nutritionist is also advisable so that the right number of calories, proteins and carbohydrates will be computed for your age and built.

I hope this helps. Take care and keep us posted.
