#Abe2Zee against CKD

Update posted by Zee Sta Barbara On Jun 25, 2018

Hi Friends and Supporters!

This is for those who are considering donating their kidney to save a life - Zee's life or anyone else who may be in need to undergo Kidney Transplant.

Below listed is what one living donor can expect after kidney donation.

1. People can live normal lives with only one kidney. As long as the donor is evaluated thoroughly and cleared for donation, he or she can lead a normal life after the surgery. When the kidney is removed, the single normal kidney will increase in size to compensate for the loss of the donated kidney.

2. Living donation does not change life expectancy, and does not appear to increase the risk of kidney failure. In general, most people with a single normal kidney have few or no problems...

3. Some donors have reported long-term problems with pain, nerve damage, hernia or intestinal obstruction. These risks seem to be rare, but there are currently no national statistics on the frequency of these problems.

4. After donation you should be able to go back to a regular, healthy lifestyle. If you are in good health, there will probably not be any specific dietary restrictions.

5. Generally, living kidney donors do well with pregnancy after their donation.

As with anything in life, nothing is 100% risk free. You may read the full article "What to Expect After Donation" here: https://www.kidney.org/…/livingd…/what-expect-afte...

Also, we are continuously looking for different ways to earn more income to support Zee's medical needs.

Hi Supporters,

Here's a screenshot of some of my latest lab results


Thank you and thank God that I am still regarded as stable, as per my doctors' assesments. However, we are again reminded that we need to actively find a donor because if my Creatinine was at 3.00mg/dL instead of 2.46mg/dL, then my case would abruptly be considered critical and I would have to be ready for my transplant. I'm still holding on as much as I can, taking my meedicatioins and being strict and good with my diet. So thank you for the support and love. Please continue to send the support!


Thank you very much!

Today was Extraction day.

Every month Zee undergoes at least one set of blood extraction for her monthly check ups and follow ups with her doctors.

We hope friends and supporters can continue to pray and support us in this journey.
Thank you!

Hi friends and supporters,
As we were going through and reviewing Zee's medical record, we found this one 5 page document that her hospital provided. It's quite a list of things about her condition. The photo below is just one page out of 5.

We hope you can continue to pray with us and support for Zee's medical condition.

Thank you very much!

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)."
