I have recently got my Crohn's dis-ease into remission only to be now told that my kidneys are blinking - microalbuminuria, hypertension, cholesterol - and that all the foods that have saved my gut are no good for my kidneys (originally damaged twenty years ago by mesasalazine - a drug prescribed to treat Crohn's). I'm pretty angry and am now scared to eat anything. My bones and teeth are all aching from the lack of fats and oils and probably from the blood pressure meds I've started taking last week. Vitamin D levels are at 95, dr said to keep doing what I'm doing as that's a fantastic result. Calcium, potassium, magnesium all good. Thyroid was also making itself shown in blood test but dr said this often happens then is nothing in repeat test.
I've been looking up foods and juices but there is so much conflicting info and the anxiety of it all is just adding to the confusion. I don't have swollen arms, legs, ankles, itchy skin, rash, etc. I was feeling fantastic and only went the drs to have my remission confirmed via inflammatory marker test. Inflammation is down along with all my previous kidney issue warning signs from yrs ago but the proteins are showing up in urine.
I have a yard and garden so can grow what is needed if anyone has any suggestions.
Currently juicing beetroot, celery, carrots, zuchini
Growing organic spinach, assorted varieties of parsley, dandelions, basil, mints, taragon, rosemary, teatree, mandarines, nectarines, pears, chokos (again! drown proof this time), cress, blueberries, strawberries, oregano, tumeric, tomatos, potatoes ....
Taking natural E, D when no sunshine, de-chlorinated water, I do drink tea with goat milk. Also drinking supermarket brand Spring water atm. Have dropped all dairy other than butter oil, only enough to take E and cod liver oil. Feel so much calmer after taking it.
I'll leave it here.
All help greatly appreciated!
