    Kidney disease


    My friend is 22 and has kidney disease and is afraid to take any supps. He asked me what he could take and I didn't wanna give him any advice, but I told him I'd ask people on here. Any suggestions on what he can take, if he can take anything at all? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    You friend is smart to stay away from supp's. I would ask my dietitian(I hope I spelled this right) if I were him. He needs to be extremely careful because of interactions with the meds he is taking.

    Agree, make sure he checks with his doctor before taking any supps.

    Just stating Kidney disease is pretty vague. Any particulars?

    Is he on dialysis? There's a whole lot of regular foods he can't eat either.
    He really needs to talk to a doc or dietitian, i'd think most supps would be a no no in that condition.

    Actually, while on dialysis dietary restrictions can be a little less stringent. If it is ESRD fluid restictions can be pretty tight, sometimes only 1000ml/day + replacing any urine output.

    There's a pretty big list, I feel sad for those on dialysis. I don't know how my wife handles working for one.

    I just recovered from a kidney infection which is not quite as bad as kidney disease but for what it's worth, i stopped all sup use except protein. Once i had no pain for several days i went ahead and started sups back up.
