Dr. George Klauber
Specializes in Pediatric Urology
W. nephrologist help: Cause of chronic kidney disease should be determined & treated or stop medications, like Aspirin etc. which might be responsible. Reduce protein intake, especially red meat, also salt. May require medications to control blood pressure &/or fluid retention. All best managed by kidney Dr/nephrologist. Good Luck.
