I recently moved from India to USA. I am 75 years old woman. Both of my kidneys have shrunk. I control my blood pressure with medicine and it is under control. But, recently I have started experiencing chills all day and some blisters on my lips. I have no other symptoms - no fever or cold. I am also very sleepless. In India, I was advised not to eat Proteins and Potassium rich diet so I don't eat green leafy vegetables, beans, tofu. Could you advise me of a diet as well as recommend how to fix chills? I took a hemoglobin shot just last month - so I am not sure if it is because of low hemoglobin.
