Hello fishing_gal, I'm sorry for your continued problem with the kidney situation. Have you read the responses to your posts in Diabetes and Chronic Pain?
As I explained in the Diabetes response, metformin can worsen a kidney problem so that is why your doctor would have you stop taking it. However, you want to keep your blood sugar close to normal for your kidney health. Has your doctor referred you to a nephrologist or given you some food guidelines for renal health?
In short, it is best not to overload on meat, potassium or phosphorus. Here are some sites for you to read for food suggestions which will help with your kidney health:https://www.davita.com/diet-nutrition/articles/advice/top-15-healthy-foods-for-people-with-kidney-diseasehttps://www.healthline.com/nutrition/best-foods-for-kidneys#section1
The best food for both diabetes and your kidney health will be fresh vegetables and a small amount of protein. Please ask your doctor for guidance as to what you should eat. Show him or her the lists on those websites to confirm that those are good choices.
We are here to help you.
