I’m stage 3. I have a high count of protein in my urine, really high. My doctor said to cut way back on protein. Where do I go for help on this. I need to lose weight as-well. I thought a DaVita dietician could help me but she said no, only if your on dialysis. I’m trying to avoid dialysis! (Lol). Thank you for any help.

I suggest that you follow the DASH diet.  The most important part of the diet is to maintain a low salt diet and the sodium intake should be less than 2300 milligrams per day.  You can review the DASH diet at:  https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/health-topics/topics/dash
