Yes, your labs do change. But it is not a uniform process. I became anemic quite early, but my potassium stayed normal. My damaged kidneys were ok for filtering some things, but other things didn't work so well. That's why you have to have labs on a regular basis and why changes in your diet are based on labwork. I didn't have to give up phosphorus (dairy) until quite late in the process, but had to give up high potassium foods much earlier.

Hope this helps a bit.
