Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

The main parts of treating kidney disease are : (1) treating the condition that caused your kidney disease if possible to stop or delay any further damage

(2) treating any symptoms that you may have as a result of your kidney disease

(3)using medications to replace any low levels of electrolytes. You are presently using a number of medications to replace your calcium, vitamin d , bicarbonate and phosphorus levels

IN terms of preventing any further damage: (1) treat the underlying condition that may have caused the kidney disease

(2) if you smoke it would be important to stop because this can cause damage

(3) maintaining a good blood pressure is very important because high blood pressure will damage the kidneys. There is a family of medications that are helpful in the blood pressure and in kidney disease- ACE inhibitors or ARB medications.

They cannot be used in late stages however but are helpful in the early stages.

(4) it would be important to avoid NSAIDS. These are medications normally used for pain such as ibuprofen, aspirin, naproxen. They can damage the kidneys further.

I hope this helps
