"Now I am more agile in many things, I don't like to stand still, I must be active, and I feel energized to do it"
In a routine medical examination that I had with my cardiologist more than 7 years ago due to my heart condition, they detected that I had kidney failure. It was a true surprise! But I never have gone to dialysis. I have faithfully followed what has been recommended by my nutritionist from the KetoCare center: the diet and the corresponding supplementation. And thanks to that and to all the recommendations, I haven't really had any setbacks.
The diet allowed me to change my way of thinking, and above all my way of being. I used to eat pork and other meats. Today, I have discarded that from my food list. Now I am more agile in many things, I don't like to stand still, I must be active, and I feel energized to do it.
Every day as soon as I get up, I get ready, have breakfast, and read the newspaper. Then I walk in the morning and right away at noon or so, my wife and I do our midday prayers. I can live a completely normal life. My health has not declined in the past years thanks to the treatment.
I had a lot of support from my daughter, who now lives here with us. She is the one who supports us also with the medication. Of course, I thank my wife for supporting me as well. The help I received from my nutritionist in the KetoCare center, who has givem me this new lifestyle was essential. She shared a recipe book with me that has made the diet change much easier. I am able to eat dishes that - for sure - are good for me.
To all the patients who are diagnosed with this disease I would recommend to do what I have done: adapt your diet, change your lifestyle, get active and not only leave it in the hands of the doctor or the nutritionist. You must be active, self-controlled and collaborative. It has a lot to do with the will to do things right!
