If you have kidney problems, you're going to want to be hydrated if you do any kind of exercise. Kidney stones are an issue with dehydration.

But of course, any kind of exercise program or change to medication should be consulted with a physician.

Walking is boring and doesn't lose weight like running. hiking I don't like also. My doctor said I can run and do other cardio exercises so that's what I will do.

Why would I get another advice? This is what it is now so I will do what he says. I only wanted to know why they are giving me different information. I don't have the time and money to go to every kidney specialist just to find out which is the most popular advice. You do that. Not even many kidney specialist in my area. This is the one closest to me and that's 40 minutes away. Other than that it will be over 1 hour.

Then I guess I'm confused. If you agree with what you do now and don't want to change, why did you ask about the differing opinions? Different specialists can have differing opinions about the same conditions.

I didnít suggest that, but was just confirming that there are many different opinions. Mine is also 30 minutes away. Itís up to you if you want to get other opinions, without the time and money I wouldnít either, unless the treatment was failing.

I just went to another kidney specialist and he told me that's not true and I can run and jog and do other cardio exercises and that it's not a problem and won't do any damage to the kidneys. The first kidney specialist wanted my blood pressure to be 110/70 or 110/80 since she said it's for extra protection for the kidneys since stress from work and other things that causes blood pressure to increase can make kidneys worse. The new kidney specialist said he wants my blood pressure to be 130/70 or 130/80. The first kidney specialist wanted me to take lisinopril even though it increased my potassium. She said high potassium can damage the kidneys. My new kidney specialist said high potassium doesn't damage the kidneys but should be avoided because it can lead to a heart attack. He also added that if I take lisinopril that a potassium medication should be given along with it to decrease the potassium. For the new kidney specialist it says on the website that he specializes in high blood pressure medication. Does this mean all kidney specialist also specialist in high blood pressure medications?
Seriously,

Do your OWN research.

Methodically, carefully, and and online.

You will find the answers. There are meta-studies, medical studies of all sorts. It takes time and patience to sort through it. IMO, save all research and youtube videos in a folder on your email with a description of the topic of kidneys be it diet, exercise, or supps or whatever. Make an outline of each research paper or video (and of course triple check it to see if other disagree).

Here is one source and no I'm not selling him (although it's free):

The OP has numerous other issues that he has discussed in other threads. He should not be substituting research he finds online with the advice he gets from his physicians who have the opportunity to look at all of his conditions and make recommendations.
