I have stage 3 kidney disease (gfr50). I would like to use a foot bath to which I would add Epson salts. Since it contains magnesium, do you think one could absorb enough to perhaps be detrimental to the kidneys?

Magnesium does not absorb through the skin and the bath should be safe for you to use.
