Facing Stage 5 Kidney Failure, Bostin Loyd Details His Journey

Bostin Loyd discusses kidney failure.

Bostin Loyd has been known for his controversial stances on bodybuilding. In particular the avid bodybuilder and trainer has been very open and honest about the substances he’s used to attain his physique.

It’s no secret that in order to become a top bodybuilder that a competitor must utilize methods that are unnatural. Bostin Loyd knows this well and has put his body to the test, utilizing a number of substances to enhance his physique over the years.

Now it appears that his methods are coming back to haunt him.

Recently on his new podcast “Non Fraudulent Bodybuilding Podcast”, Bostin Loyd revealed that he has stage 5 kidney failure. The cause is likely due to the lifestyle of a bodybuilder which requires not only utilizing foreign substances but also cutting through dehydration. Here’s what Bostin Loyd had to say about his struggles in a recent Instagram post.

Very 1st episode of the “Non Fraudulent Bodybuilding Podcast”. I go into depth about my health issues. Ever since I found out I was in Stage 5 Kidney failure in late October my focus and studying has turned into how I can restore my kidney function. If I’m able to recover from this it will be a miracle and I will go into detail on my treatments such as recovery peptides, Gluthithione, stem cells etc. My interest for the kidneys has increased tremendously.

When I was younger I use to think I was invincible and my only fear in bodybuilding (kidney failure) has became a reality. I did this to myself with a idiotic experiment and it finally all caught up to me. Do I regret anything? Absolutely not but I will continue to learn from my mistakes and hope to spread the word and benefit people in the long run when it comes to longevity.

I want to thank Real-Peptides, Amino Asylum, and IaSuperPharma for providing me with proven and tested supplements to get me healthy again. Hate all you want but I dreamed it, lived it, and now experiencing it and I wouldn’t wish this even on my worst enemy……
