Choices matter: You are making a good decision to choose your lifestyle. Since you already have moderate kidney disease, protecting the remaining is important. Weight loss, exercise, low sodium diet, avoiding tobacco and nsaids together with controlled blood pressure and blood sugar will protect your remaining kidney function. Fluid intake in general water if your thirsty, don't "push" fluids. Good luck.

Control and prevent.: Treatment is aimed at controlling the underlying disease which is causing his dysfunction ( diabetes, hypertension, etc.) and in preventing further damage to the kidneys by avoiding any kidney toxic medications and in potentially taking appropriate medications such as angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors. Sounds like you have already talked to someone about this.
