Hello, I have CKD stage 3. Recently I developed a condition for which Prednisone has been prescribed which gives me major heartburn! What can I take that's OK for my kidneys? I notice Tums contains sodium pyrophosphate as an inactive ingredient.
Any ideas or personal experiences? Thanks for any help
