While in the hospital, I had a visit from a kidney doctor who told me kidneys are functioning at about 30%. Another fun side effect of myeloma. So on Thursday (only 3 days after being diagnosed), I had an appointment with the kidney specialist and was put on a weird ass diet. Low protein, no whole grains, low potassium, low sodium. Lots of white bread, fat, pasta, minimal dairy and some fruit. That eliminates super nachos. Oh and beer is out too. Damn you myeloma!!!

Some reading about my myeloma specialist's success rate. A press release and an article from Targeted Oncology.
