 My husband is in stage 3 kidney damage.  He is diabettic and of course on insulin and pills.  He also has heart problems which I am sure is caused by the diabettes.  He went from stage 2 to stage 3 in a years time.  He has seen a kidney specialist but she hasn't given him any meds or helped him in any way that I can see.  She just talks to him and takes his money, and says come back in 6 months.  Just how serious is this and what should we expect.  We get no answers from the doctor.   Thanks for the advice.
