I AM A 78 YR OLD WHITE FEMALE- CKD3 GFR 47 CREATININE 1.13 URINALYSIS AND ALL OTHER LABS WNL. DRINKING GALLON WATER PER DAY AND KEEPING PROTEIN INTAKE TO 40g OR LESS. WHAT ELSE CAN I DO TO MAINTAIN CKD3 OR GO BACK TO CKD 2? IS THERE ANYWHERE THAT CURRENT CHINESE TREATMENT IS GIVEN? SEEMS THEY HAVE A BETTER HANDLE ON THIS DISEASE, BUT CANNOT IN ANY WAY GO TO CHINA.

I am not aware that the Chinese have any superior treatment of chronic kidney disease (CKD) as compared with treatment in the United States.  Your physician should be able to recommend treatment that slows the process of CKD and does not harm you.  I recommend that you follow your physician’s advice.
