I have been working with a nutritionist and one of the latest supplements recommended is Cal-Amo which is Ammonium Chloride; Betaine hydro hloride; Calcium Chloride; Calcium Lactate; Magnesium citrate; Calcium stearate. I am a stage 3 Kidney disease person, aged 78 female. Is this a safe product for me at this time ?

I have no experience with a supplement called Cal-Amo.  I am not aware of any research that has been done on this supplement in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD).  Of the compounds that you mention in Cal-Amo, I would have some concern about Ammonium Chloride which is known to induce metabolic acidosis in patients with certain types of kidney disease.
