Treating Kidney Disease With Diet And Keto Acids

A low protein diet is needed to manage chronic kidney disease, but what if you take too little protein? Most people are probably aware that we all have two kidneys that filter out waste products from our body in the form of urine. But many might not be aware that these bean-shaped, fist-sized organs can actually take a great deal of punishment before showing any noticeable symptoms. In fact, we can live a fairly normal life with just one kidney, as both kidney transplant recipients and donors can attest to. The downside however, is that we are often unaware that anything is wrong with our kidneys until it is too late. According to consultant nephrologist Dr Chong Yip Boon, around 30-40% of chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients who come to see him for the first time already have such advanced conditions that most of their kidney function cannot be salvaged. “Most patients with CKD do not have symptoms, or only mild to moderate symptoms; that is why it is called ‘a silent killer’,” he says. Many of the symptoms are also fairly generic, like loss of appetite and weight, nausea and vomiting, itchiness, fatigue, swollen legs and frothy urine, making it a tough job to correctly d Continue reading >>

    So I have been on induction for a few weeks now, working on moving into phase 2.
    I am stalled but here is the problem and not sure if they are related. I have had excruciating back pain in my lower back area, I do have a couple of old disk injuries and they do flare up once in a great great while (last time was 4 yrs ago). Anyway, I am in the moderate level of ketosis which I have never stayed in for so long. I have increased my water a lot(I would guess 60+oz a day) but it still remains in the moderate level. Generally if I am drinking that much water it goes back into the small or trace level. (No I am not good at logging my water intake). I was drinking a lot of black tea but switched to herbal and now to water along with tea. Also no weight loss at all this week. So I am wondering if I still need to increase the water more? Could this be the cause of my back pain? I know that I am not eating enough veges and some of the foods I have eaten have other carbs not allowed, but then I would have thought those would have taken me out of ketosis.
    Any ideas?

    Don't know about your back pain. It should not be something that happen because of your diet choices or water. But I don't know anything about disk injuries Maybe you want to check it out with your physician.
    I think you should focus less on this "ketosis". If you measure with stix they may just be very inaccurate. Follow the diet and eat enough fat and veggies as suggested by Dr. Atkins. That is what will get you the result you need.

    hey there. Sorry you are feeling stuck right now. Please be assured that ketosis is completely safe and will not cause you any back pain.
    Let me see if I can help you with some of your questions:
    water -- It's hard to say at this point, but perhaps you will not have to increase the water intake if you are already drinking a lot. The rule for the water is this: For ideal results, take your total weight, divide that number by 2 -- and this determines the number of ounces you need to be drinking daily.
    stix -- the experts say don't put a lot of stock into ketostix and don't worry if your stix are indicating a "moderate level". Due to the fact that this diet is a diuretic and the excess water you drink is flushing out the ketones, it is likely that your reading will appear less intense than it actually is.
    diet - from observing your diet calendar I could see a few things that caught my eye. Perhaps red flags? Things that could be causing the stall? Carrots have a high glycemic index (spike in blood sugar) and for this reason they are not allowable in Induction. For each day I checked out, you ate carrots. Next, perhaps you are getting hidden carbs in the ketchup. The entry did not indicate if you are using reduced sugar ketchup. Regular ketchup has tons of sugar in it. Also, while the atkins bars/snacks are awesome, they do tend to cause stalls in many people's weight loss. This is due to the sugar alcohols used as artificial sweetners. I recommend that you stop eating the entirely - give it 2 weeks and then reevaluate if you can have them, or not. Later on, you can implement an idea that I use. I cut one atkins bar into bite-size pieces and refrigerate. I will just eat one bite a day - as opposed to eating the entire serving. This helps to limit the sugar alcohol intake and prevents me from stalling.
    I noticed you don't seem to be getting in the required amount of fat and vegetables. To do this right, it is important to have a minimum of 12-15 net carbs in approved foundational veggies daily. Try snacking on things like olives, deviled eggs, pepperoni slices to increase your fat and healthy carb intake. Best wishes on your continued success. I surely hope you get some relief from that back pain.

http://www.arthritistreatmentcenter.com So what are some of the differences between rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis? While many physicians treat rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic similarly, they are very different. In a recent article Dr. Christopher Ritchlin from the University of Rochester pointed out some key distinctions. Unlike rheumatoid disease, patients with psoriatic arthritis have nail disease, obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, elevated blood lipids, fatty liver, metabolic syndrome, and anxiety as well as depression. 10-15% also develop inflammatory bowel disease. The drug treatment for these two diseases will diverge in the future as our understanding increases. http://youtu.be/AgnjzevWH7g

4 Ways Ketogenic Diet Benefits In Rheumatoid Arthritis (dosage, Precautions)

Rheumatoid arthritis(RA) is a disease in which the body’s immune system attacks its own healthy cells. This causes inflammation, swelling, pain and redness of the bone joints. It can affect any joint of the body [1]. Rheumatoid arthritis mostly affects women than men [2]. The exact cause of rheumatoid arthritis is not identified but it may be related to genetic, environmental and hormonal factors [3]. Inflammation involves the accumulation of immune cells (that protect the body from foreign substances) at the joints which are brought about by biochemical compounds called inflammatory mediators [4]. Diet control can have a great influence on disease control [5]. One such unique diet proposed to reduce inflammation is called Ketogenic Diet. Before we discuss its benefits let us know a little about this diet. What is a Ketogenic Diet? The ketogenic diet is a fat rich and low carbohydrate diet. The carbohydrates consumed in a normal diet are converted to glucose and used as energy. The fats in the diet are usually stored in the body [6]. When there is a low intake of carbohydrate in the diet the body is forced to metabolize fat. This allows the body to depend on fat rather than gluco Continue reading >>

Living With Pkd

Currently no specific diet has been proven to make your polycystic kidneys better or keep them from getting worse. It is, however, ideal to eat a balanced and healthy diet to maintain optimal body conditions. A healthy body is able to fight infection better, and bounce back faster. Accumulation of waste products filtered by your kidneys will build up in your blood as kidney function declines. At the more advanced stages of kidney failure (i.e. GFR <30-40 percent), significant accumulation of these waste products in your blood can cause symptoms of kidney failure. Should I stop eating protein? The major source of these waste products is the food you eat, especially protein. Therefore, when you have lost a significant amount of kidney function, a lower protein diet may be ordered by your doctor. Studies from both animals and humans with chronic kidney failure have shown that eating large amounts of protein may accelerate the progressive decline of kidney function. However, the Modification in Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) study done by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) looked at protein intake and kidney function. The results did not show any benefit of lowering protein intake i Continue reading >>

    Hello Community,
    I have something weird going on here and I can't put my finger on it.
    I am getting a lower left & right back pain and can't explain it. It is a dull pain and would register at about a 1 out of 10 on a pain scale. As my signature states below, pain calls attention to something that is unhealthy.
    I have been rather active lately and have been on Animal-Pak vitamins. However, I also have been drinking a LOT of water for the past two weeks, about 1.5 to 2 gallons a day. (I weigh 311Lbs.) I guzzle H2O at the gym.
    Aah, I don't want to even think this is a kidney related issue from being low carb for only 12 days now. Don't beat me up for even mentioning that its relation to my SKD. I have been eating STRICTLY and maintaining a sub-20 carb intake per day. I feel amazing and have lost about 11 pounds so far.
    Sorry for the rant, just needed to vent some steam about this nagging issue.
    I just downed 32oz of H20 while writing this post and I'm hoping for the best.
    Thank you all,
    Note: I have not carbed up yet, I originally started the BFFM style of carb ups for training and every third day nevertheless I was gaining/maintaining too much fat so I discontinued that regimen in September of 2007.

    I get this too sometimes, and I think it might be because of.... uh... issues going number two for me (sorry for the TMI). I imagine my intestines being too full and pushing on my kidneys. Maybe that could be it?

  3. PSMF

    IMO don't drink more then 1 gallon of water, start taking lots of electrolytes in your drinking water and then report back.
    See Morton salt substitute and Morton light salt for cheep source of potassium chloride and sodium chloride and iodine. Start eating red meat for zinc.
