Thanks my GP told me I should stay away from protein shakes something about my kidneys which my bloods say are fine, Im confused now I really want to start working out again and get back jogging which I have not done in 2 years so protein shakes wont effect me while on Konverge

If the kidney function is normal there is no reason to avoid protein
