I know this has probably been asked a lot and people are going to ask me to google it, but I have seen so many different answers and reasoning's. So how much protein do you believe is needed. I ask because I am very concerned about the condition of my kidneys.

Do you already have kidney issues? If not I wouldnt worry about it too much. Shoot for 1- 1 1/2 grams per pound of bodyweight.
ex. - if you weigh 150 lbs.= 150-225g protein per day.
