CKD: I hope that you are under the care of a nephrologist who is following your renal function. If you are feeling tired, your renal function may be getting worse and you may have anemia. See your doctor and follow his recommendations.

Please see a doctor: There is very little risk in taking Geritol but that depends on your kidney function. Excess of vitamins can be harmful and your vitamin dose and regimen can be tailored to your kidney function.
