Welcome to HCM.
CKD can be managed but not cured unfortunately.
The essence of treatment are
1. Restricted fluid intake.
2. Low salt diet.
3. Moderate protein diet.
4. Supplementation of vitamins, iron and calcium.
Please contact your nephrologist as he is the ideal person to guide you.
best regards
