April 18, 2008, was my first visit to a nephrologist. I completed a special lab procedure last week and will meet with the doctor again in mid-July. Depending on the results of the lab work I may need a biopsy. I am seeking information to help my kidneys. Recently I read a newsletter from Frederick, MD, that said drinking too much water can lead to kidney failure.
Since the visit in April I have started doing sit-ups and being selective in my food intake. In early March I weighed 175 pounds (my heaviest ever!!) . . . Now (June 5) I fluctuate from 155 to 160. I hope to compete in a fun run in late June so I plan to walk/jog/run every day to condition for that race.
I have energy and want to maintain my health so I can serve our people. I meet with my main physician next week.
