Diabetes diet kidney

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes diet kidney


Avatar m tn First, this is not diabetes related but I know of these test and will comment. Creatinine, not cratinene, and Blood Urea Nitrogen [BUN], not blood ureas, are associated with renal function. The former measures kidney function, the latter waste product in the blood. Your posted test levels have no meaning without ranges [min-to-max]. Talk with the doctor who ordered these tests.
Avatar n tn In Type 1 diabetes, about 60 percent of those individuals develop kidney disease. I was just wondering - of all the Diabetics on this forum .... how many have had endocrinologists put you on medication to *prevent* kidney failure soon after your were first diagnosed? My endo is really pushing to put me on medication in case (and I stress the words "in case") I may get Kidney Disease. I have no signs of it or have it now. My Kidneys are healthy.
Avatar n tn The doctor said her glucose level was 13 from the normal level 6. Can her diabetes be cured wth diet,exercise or is it too high to get rid of through a changed diet and exercise?
Avatar n tn In addition after starting the pump and following a low carb diet I lost 35lbs the first year without really trying. It was merely counting the carbs I was eating and making sure the insulin dose corresponded to the food. I must admit that I did not eat a lot of carbs because my control was so much better without them. And with better control I felt so much better so that was my motivation. I hope this gives you some inspiration to try the pump. I truly believe you will be glad you did.
Avatar f tn In addition, plenty of people have worse kidney function and don’t feel pain, so the pain is not her kidney…And since blood pressure is low kidneys are probably not the problem. (I know she is not a high carb eater…but took it anyway.) Her diet is consistent and healthy and she takes appropriate supplements. Weight goes up and down with no known cause, not a small swing a large swing.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes for several years. The diet is the same diet recommended for Type 1 diabetes. Your doctor or The ADA can give you a copy of the recommended diet. The difference in the diet for Type 2 is that you do not have to eat on such a strict schedule. Please be careful to check your blood sugars often. You should not have more than 3 servings of carbs per meal as recommended by the ADA.
Avatar f tn Well, off hand, I would say that a call to a local nutritionist would be in order she/he will be able to give you the right list of foods and how much to eat, etc. Some hospitals have one or two on staff and they are available to help, especially if the doctor writes a prescription to see one. Also, try doing a "google" search, there are all kinds of sites on what to eat and what not too.
Avatar f tn I'm considering lap-band surgery to lose the extra weight that I've gained over last 30 years. I was born with only one kidney. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 2 years ago. And my doctor just added a second high blood pressure medication as my bp was getting out of control. I am worried that my only kidney will be damaged. Can I qualify for medically needed weight reduction surgery?
Avatar m tn People with blood sugar problems are often told to limit the amount of protein in their diets. This can help delay the progression of kidney disease. But new research indicates the key to healthier kidneys for diabetics may have more to do with the type of proteins they eat rather than the amount. Findings from a large British study indicate that eating fish at least twice a week seemed to reduce incidents of kidney disease in patients with blood sugar problems! Amanda I. Adler, M.D.
Avatar f tn Can any body give a diet chart for a kidney fail patient? Patient condition Blood Sugar = Normal. Urea = 111 Cretinine = 3.
Avatar n tn Dear winkster, Actually a diabetic diet is really only what a healthy diet would be for people without diabetes. And fruits are a part of that even though they have sugar it get metabolized like any other carbohydrates.
Avatar n tn You're not getting any responses because of your poor grammar. Please re-write you question fully in understandable English, not broken sentences. I have reread your post three times and still can't understand what you are trying to say/ask.
Avatar f tn Common causes of weight gain like overeating, lack of exercise, diabetes, hypothyroidism have to be ruled out in your case. You must then look for other causes. One is water retention due to low serum protein. This along with anemia can cause unexplained weight gain. Adrenal gland problems are the other cause. Cushing’s syndrome should be looked for. The kidney function too should be assessed. Late night snacking and poor sleep too can cause weight gain.
Avatar f tn I am really scared of getting diabetes as my dad's side has a history of diabetes and scared of the restricted life u have due to it.
Avatar n tn Ketones and proteins in the urine can result from many factors, like excessive exercise, dehydration, high protein diet, kidney problems, and diabetes. Diabetes in the initial stages does not produce glucose in urine. However neither will it bring about ketones and proteins in the urine at an early stage. These are generally the signs of uncontrolled diabetes. You need to check the blood sugar fasting (8-12 hours) and two hours after a proper meal.

Avatar n tn I have type 1 diabetes and have not had a menstral cycle in a long time. my blood sugar levels have been high for years now... could this be why my periods have stopped? If I go on birth control will that regulate me?
Avatar m tn Since this illness has started I was about 146 pounds (almost two months ago) and now I'm at 129. I'm also always thirsty and have had episodes of what seems to be kidney/lower back pain. This pain reduced when I switched to eating a lower carb/high protein diet, which I only did when I found that eating breads, sugary fruits intensified my shortness of breath/shakyness. Finally I have also had episodes of numbness and tingling in my arms and legs that come and go in various intensity.
Avatar m tn It is almost impossible to get near normal GFR levels. However with diet control and keeping a good control on diabetes and hypertension, you can slow down further progression and lead a normal life. Please discuss with your treating doctor. Hope this helps. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have kidney failure do to diabetes. What kinds of foods or supplements will help or hurt my kidneys? I've heard that co q10 is benefical. Any help would be beneficial!
Avatar n tn I followed the protocol in KT's book and began my diet on the third day but Dr. Simmeon's protocol says to gorge for 3 days and then begin the diet. I don't know why there is a day difference in the protocols. Also I noticed that DR. Simmeon says to eat white fish but in KT's book he is specific about the white fish being halibut, Chilean sea bass, flounder or sole. Is anyone following just Dr. Simmeon's protocol and if so are you eating other white fish like orange roughy or tilapia?
Avatar f tn fist thing is too get the doc to check diet .she should possibly be on kidney diet not the diabetic diet the 2 diets do not compliment each other.this is what happened to me i have stage3 kidney failure and type 2 diabetes. if i eat the diabetic diet my renal # go all to **** to much protein in the diabetic diet.try and get her to do some exercise .i know that can be hard but i have lost 70 lbs and am still chunky.
Avatar f tn I am 20 years old and have had type 1 diabetes for 15 years. My latest a1c was 7.1. I have always been pretty on top of the diabetes care, but it's hard to be perfect especially during the hormonal early teenage years. About two years ago I was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and had a defibrillator implanted in my chest. I go to a cardioloigist twice a year and have no cardiac problems.
Avatar m tn Maybe stage 3 is seldom reversable but it did happen to me and the only thing I did differently was follow the kidney diet and quit taking NSAIDS (advil, etc.) and it wasn't like I was taking a lot of NSAIDS. I was on the high end of stage three. My decline was 45% reduction in 3 years. I had a test three years ago that was fine and then had a test 2 years ago that was low (but that doctor decided it wasn't important and didn't tell me about it.
Avatar f tn Hello, The kidney stone is probably a separate problem from the diabetes. 7 mm is not so large. With your Dr's consent you may choose to observe (and drink plenty of fluids to try to flush it out). There are also other approach which is using ultrasonic wave to break up the stone, though I don't know how applicable this is to a small stone. In any case, also work to control your blood sugar very well (diet, exercise, medication), to keep your overall health as good as possible.
Avatar f tn People are born with a single kidney and may not be aware of it. It is sometimes detected accidentally. The single kidney usually compensates for the functionality. So, don’t worry. Only take care to keep risk factors like diabetes and hypertension under check and also treat any urinary infections promptly. Please discuss all your doubts with your consulting doctor before consenting for surgery. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
5317403 tn?1366343801 My question is.. Although I will do a kidney replacement regardless (if I am a match), will a person with diabetes really go through a new kidney that quickly? And how long can a new kidney give him? Should also mention that he will be receiving dialysis soon.
