I’m dealing with kidney issues as well with high blood pressure, which you know high blood pressue can be a contributing factor or the main cause. This happened to me out of nowhere it seemed like. Which leads me to my question. Are you able to control your blood pressure through diet alone now, or are you still on blood pressure medication? I’m in the beginning of stages of dealing with this medical problem, and I was wondering if you were able to get a handle on it yourself without the use a decent amount of prescription medications? Also, are you really having to watch your protein intake as well still? I know youre not a medical professional, but the lifestyle we lead is different than the average bear, so I was hoping to learn from others that share a similar lifestyle (from what I can tell), that have more experience dealing with similar problems.
