Foodie Friday: Iron and CKD

Today, kicks off a new series of topics covering Iron, Anemia and CKD.  If you have CKD, you probably have had, or maybe have right now, Iron deficiency otherwise known as Anemia.  I was Anemic when first diagnosed, and all I did was sleep.  Couldn’t help it, was just plain exhausted.  The last couple weeks  I have been more tired than usual, for no apparent reason.  That makes me think I may need to boost my Iron intake.  I have been following a 1200 calorie diet, and increasing exercise, during that same time period.  So, I have to stop that.  Losing weight is not more important than retaining kidney function.  Below is a nice video talking about Anemia, and how it pertains to the kidneys, and CKD.  Each Friday I will add to the topic, until I feel like I have covered as much as I can.
