Hi Nadia,
The dose required to slow the kidney failing down is an intelligent guess, and will tend to be on the high side, I was thinking if you could get a Dr interested they may try reducing the level.

Another approach would be to look at your diet, see if it can be improved, and light exercise, say 20mins brisk walk 3 or 4 times a week, trying to improve your resistance a bit.

As a side effect of kidney failure patients tend towards depression, and are easily tired out, and with general joint and muscle pains, these symptoms will come on progressively as the kidney function declines, the severity varies from person to person.
