Good news is, Zimca, I have seen a good amount of people with frequent urination with Lyme. So didn't want to make you nervous about kidneys. Thank Girle has had it off and on?
Have reduced protein intake. Had already lost 20 pounds with Lyme Disease in last few years, so what is there to eat? Carb restriction on top of that.
I have been nervous before, but this one has me out there. And can't figure out why LLMD didn't seem concerned about low GFR 5 years ago. I've seen other people with LD have that, but not a tremendous amount. Now even protein in urine on a couple of 24-hour urine tests.
Can Lyme do all this? Toxins? Co-infections? I've been trying to find the answers and struggling to.
I've only had one 'wonky' kidney function test. I've not had any urinary issues is the past few years. ( I did have urgency prior to diagnosis 4 years ago...but no issues anymore)
I do think the meds I'm on could be causing the trouble.
Hard to restrict protein...if you're restricting carbs...what else is there.
I guess healthy carbs - lots of vegetables...and small amount of protein...small piece of chicken, or an egg...etc.
