Diabetic Kidney Disease Polycystic Kidney Disease

Are you at risk for kidney disease?

Diabetic Kidney Disease

The world of diabetes can be complex and filled with many potential complications, one of which is Diabetic Kidney Disease (DKD), sometimes referred to as Chronic Kidney Disease or CKD. Diabetic Kidney Disease is a kidney-related complication that can arise due to diabetes. It’s a top reason why people experience kidney issues. Approximately one in three adults living with diabetes has kidney disease. While kidney damage from diabetes can worsen over time, many preventative steps can be taken to keep your kidneys healthy and slow the progression of the disease.

Polycystic Kidney Disease

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder and type of chronic kidney disease that affects about 500,000 people in the United States. PKD causes cyst-filled sacs to grow on the kidneys, leading to reduced kidney function and potentially kidney failure. Although PKD is a condition that cannot yet be reversed, numerous methods are available to slow disease progression and manage symptoms effectively, forming the cornerstones of polycystic kidney disease self-care.

Christine, KetoCitra® user, August 2023

“I am so grateful for all the research, education and support from Santa Barbara Nutrients and Ren-Nu. You all make it so worthwhile. My life has really changed. I knew months ago, I knew that it was working as I could feel the difference when I felt the cysts going down on my right kidney."

Delman, KetoCitra® user, October 2023

“I just wanted to report the results of my most recent labs after taking Ketocitra for 3 months now. When I started back in June, my GFR was 50 and my creatinine was 1.68. As of two weeks ago, my GFR is 66 and my creatinine is 1.32. I am so pleased with my results. I was thrilled to learn about Ketocitra from just searching online. Along with the lifestyle changes, I think Ketocitra has been a key factor contributing to my positive results. I start seeing a new nephrologist (Dr. Sharon Iris Turban of Johns Hopkins) on Friday, and I can't wait to share my results.”

Ed, 2023 KetoCitra® user, September 2023

"Two years ago, my ultrasound showed my kidneys as being about 80% oversized, but my creatinine readings were still fine. I heard about keto and KetoCitra 15 months ago, and decided to do an experiment with both for a year before my next ultrasound. I just saw my nephrologist today, and though he had initially been skeptical, he said to remain on keto and KetoCitra because my kidney sizes have decreased by about 30% in the last year, and even if they only stabilize here, that I now will likely never need dialysis. HUGE THANKS to Dr Weimbs for this research and product!!It certainly has worked wonders for me thus far."
