Have been on dialysis for 4 years now. Last year I bought and saw the movie by Joe Cross called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. I began juicing once a day and eating all natural foods. The renal diet will kill you. My doctor took me off insulin in 2 months and my A1C went down to 5.2. (was insulin diabetic for over 30 years) I went from 245 to 167 lbs. I can walk for miles now and even run when playing with my grandson. My blood work is always great. Never any swelling and I have more energy t hen when I was 30. I will be 63 yrs young Friday the 24th of April. I am not cured yet but I will do all I can. Doctors only treat the symptoms. Good luck to you all and do all you can for yourself.
