    Cause for my illness

    I am a retired firefighter. Shortly after I retired I developed kidney disease. I am on dialysis now. I have not been given a reason for my disease. I was wondering if it could be related to my occupation.
  • Do I need dialysis?

    I was suddenly dignosed with CKD since January 2018 - everything was alright in December 2017. From January to August 2018, my creatinine steadily dropped with the help of a controlled diet and was 2.9 when I started accumulating fluid in my chest cavity.

    Credible methods to help move stuck kidney stones

    I have a 4 mm stone stuck at the top of the ureter. My next MD appointment is in 3 weeks. In the interim I wish to do all I can to possibly get the KS unstuck. So, I drink a lot of water each day. I see many articles and utube videos making claims for the effectiveness of drinking a daily mixture of fresh lemon juice mixed with olive oil, or combinations of herbs. etc. Most of these information sources come from outside of recognized professional settings. My question is - are there any methods beyond....
