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.
