#Abe2Zee against CKD

Update posted by Zee Sta Barbara On Mar 21, 2018

Zee has Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease based on her GFR. So what is GFR?

Image result for gfr

"The glomerular filtration rate is a value that helps determine if you have kidney disease and also what stage of kidney disease you are in. Whatever the value of the GFR is, is checked against a range that determines how many functions your kidneys have.
A GFR of 15-29 is considered severe, or stage 4
A GFR of less than 15 is considered end stage, or stage 5"

Hi friends and supporters!

Zee has a Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (CGM) attached to her. It was placed on her since Friday and it will be removed this coming Thursday for review. What the CGM does is it checks her sugar levels every 5 minutes continusously for 24 hours everyday until it is removed after 6 days (Thursday). Her CGM doesn't have an insulin pump attached to it, so technically it cannot tell her what her sugar levels are real time unless we do the finger pricking glucose checking. This device is meant to help identify the trend of her sugar level, accompanied by her "extra special" diet (see previous post).

You can read more about CGM from the link below.

Zee has Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). So what is it?


"Chronic kidney disease includes conditions that damage your kidneys and decrease their ability to keep you healthy by doing the jobs listed. If kidney disease gets worse, wastes can build to high levels in your blood and make you feel sick. You may develop complications like high blood pressure, anemia (low blood count), weak bones, poor nutritional health and nerve damage. Also, kidney disease increases your risk of having heart and blood vessel disease. These problems may happen slowly over a long period of time. Chronic kidney disease may be caused by diabetes, high blood pressure and other disorders. Early detection and treatment can often keep chronic kidney disease from getting worse. When kidney disease progresses, it may eventually lead to kidney failure, which requires dialysis or a kidney transplant to maintain life."

This is my new favorite - shredded cabbage aka coleslaw. This is good for one day. It's a mixture of 150g id cabbage, one onion and about a teaspoon of vegetable mayonnaise. It helps keep the potassium levels down.

One of the reasons why Zee's gone back to eating (quite a bit) of meat now:

"For example, some beans are high in potassium, a nutrient that can cause further damage to the kidneys when the level in your body gets too high. This can also cause you to feel some numbness or tingling in your body, and extreme levels of potassium can even cause a heart attack."

Good day! :)

What does potassium have in correlation to Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)?


Potassium is present in a lot of food groups but mostly in fruits and vegetables. For example, squash (kalabasa), sweet potatoes (kamote), potatoes, broccoli and bananas are rich in potassium. Hence CKD patients avoid such food or keep it very limited in order not to have Hyperkalemia

"When kidneys fail they can no longer remove excess potassium, so the level builds up in the body. High potassium in the blood is called hyperkalemia, which may occur in people with advanced stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD)."

Hi! Lunch is in a few hours!

When I'm in a hurry, I weigh my pasta (150g), pour on tomato sauce (low sodium at 90g), and portion a more or less 30g chicken (minus the skin and bones.) . That's it! Complete meal with carbs, vegetables and protein!
How about you? What's for lunch today?

'Water is the driving force of all nature.' - Leonardo da Vinci

I'm allowed 1.5 liters of water per day - no more no less. Just like how strict my diet is, so is my fluid intake. I must not drink less than 1. 5 liters or I will get dehydrated and my creatinine levels will rise up and thus harming my kidneys. I must not drink more than 1.5 or I will get swollen (either my legs and feet or it's my eyes that swell up looking like as if it's just some hideous eyebags. ) the computation includes any soup I might have.
I don't drink any sodas, energy drinks, juice (fresh and powdered), iced tea, tea or coffee so it's pretty much just water all day everyday. There are only some special exceptions, like a cup of freshly squeezed calamansi (without sugar but with sweetener) or a cup of pure black decaf coffee (I'm only allowed that much per day) but I deduct those drinks from my 1.5 liters allowance. 1.5 liters is equals to 6 cups or glasses of 250 ml.
The bottle in this picture contains 500 ml so my limit would be only 3pcs of that. (I'm no endorser of Summit, but I'm open for negotiation for contract signing. Haha! Kidding.)

Presenting my wonderful doctors! It was a good day for a check up .

The lady on the first picture below is Dra. Maria Jocelyn Isidro. She is my endocrinologist who carefully looks after my diabetes and related matters.

The gentleman on the second picture is Dr. Richard Hizon who is an expert nephrologist who looks after my kidney health.

And then there's me and of course I made sure I also look good in the pictures. :)
Thank you again for all those that sent over support these past few days.

God bless you all!
