High protein diet kidney pain

Common Questions and Answers about High protein diet kidney pain


14652685 tn?1435697030 I've lived with this issue for most of my life however I normally maintained my protein intake via a diet high in bio-available protein sources (Red meat and fish due to their acidic nature along with some plant based sources) however, due to financial hardship I can no longer afford the diet I need to stop my body from eating my own muscle tissue. It's beginning to affect not only my skeletal muscles but also my heart and other internal muscle structures.
1837090 tn?1328043721 are you eating a normal diet? or is it a diet high in protein? try to drink some Gatorade, you electrolytes might be off which could be the problem. If you are getting dizzy when you stand up, I would go to the ER and get some IV fluids with as much as you are puking.
Avatar f tn 5 years my now 17 year old has suffered chronic pain in her back (renal) area with lower abdominal pain both right side. She has reduced kidney function to that side by 10%, recurrent uti, but a partial duplex kidney system to the left. Various tests show inflamed ureter, constipation, slow transient bowel, inflammation around the ileac valve, urine ph usually around 6, protein +, leucocytes, but no actual diagnosis. No stones detected.
Avatar n tn I found that I was low in calcium. I had been eating high protein bars. Some very high. I didn't realize the protein was leaching out any calcium I had. Symptoms were, chest pain, kidney pain, shakey muscles, and loss of feeling in hands and fingers. Also cunfusion, brain fog adn fatigue. Once I started calcium tabs 1500 mg. per day and stopped the bars, symptoms began to go away. Kidneys were hurting after the chest pain.
Avatar n tn The other type of stones are uric acid kidney stones. Cutting back your intake of animal protein while increasing bulk and fiber in your diet can help prevent them from forming. Add to the problem refined sugar can pose for you, fructose can also increase uric acid excretion in the urine. Eating whole fruit doesn’t cause this problem, but drinking fruit juice or drinks sweetened with high fructose corn syrup does.
1377925 tn?1278957263 I've been researching online and have found there to be a disagreement on whether to feed a puppy a low protein diet, as well as seeing other treatments involving high quality protein rather than low protein diets? I've seen a lot of sites recommending egg whites as it is high quality protein and low phosphorus. Should I consider adding egg whites on top of the prescription diet? Or would I need to choose to go with one or the other?
Avatar m tn There are some other things that an cause pain in our kidneys, like low Vit. D, dehydration, or too high a protein diet. Even drinking too much at one time can cause back pressure, since the small cyst in out collecting ducts never let the urine drain properly.
Avatar m tn Protein: 30 mg/dL (Notes indicate it is H H.) Urine Hgb: Trace. I would truly appreciate any input you may provide. Kind regards, Carlos.
456645 tn?1208679571 There are surgical treatments available, however, the best option is to simply put on weight, by a high fat and protein diet.
Avatar m tn His creatine is high, RDW SD is high, and his protein is high (tested by urine and blood). Most everything else is beyond low (calcium, lymphocyte, hematocrit, albumin levels, neutrophil, hemoglobin). He is throwing up daily. He now has a persistent cough (which doctors cannot figure out why). He can't climb the stairs to go to bed without needing his oxygen once he gets up there. His circulation has worsen over the past year.
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 Be aware of any symptoms of urinary infections (pain or blood in urinating, pain in your kidney area, bladder, cloudy, dark or smelly urine) so that you can get your urine analysed and given the appropriate antibiotic if required. Formation of kidney stones is increased when the body is dehydrated. Some stones form from lots of kidney infections and cysteine stones are hereditary. So do make sure that you never get dehydrated and drink plenty of water.
Avatar n tn There are simple tests and procedures to diagnose kidney problems. I had such tests years ago to help differentiate my lower back pain. Turned out kidneys were fine and it was muscular. Tell your doctor you want kidney issues ruled out. If he doesn't take you serious, do your own adjustment and see another doctor. Hope it all works out.
435652 tn?1204315393 It seems like randomly once a month (sometimes twice) the morning I wake up for 3-5 ways with severe kidney pain, it's really a bizarre pain - like I can actually feel urine moving (sorry if that's gross). It wakes me up, once I'm up and moving I'm perfectly fine. Then in the evenings, I have bouts where my urine smells oddly sweet, but not a good sweet. It's got the strength of "asparagus" pee, it is sometimes cloudy or orange.
1054985 tn?1257176875 Hi Jon, I'm not on a diet (can't do the high protein atkins type w/my kidney stone'd past), but like others mention try to watch my carbs. Fluid greatly aggrevates my spasticity. I sure do feel better when I'm not bloated and suffer when I indulge. But, I still do it from time-to-time like a gluten for punishment..ha/ha. Glad you are able to drag to the gym ...you best keep those scuff wounds from draggin clean though - ha/ha..
Avatar f tn This type of protein also makes the kidneys work harder, when what they need is to be relieved of as much of their ordinary work as possible. High quality protein does not damage the kidneys. You can find high quality protein in most human grade meats, but particularly human grade chicken. Feeding good quality chicken intended for human consumption is therefore fine. Your vet is doing the right thing by introducing her to a prescribed k/d diet.
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 m tn While i may have bloating, tummy pains and rumbling of gas moving in my intestines etc, i have also been diagnosed with high protein in the urine, doctors say is caused by damage to the kidney, letting more albumin out than usual. They attribute this damage to the high blood pressure i am suffering. My question is: could the increased gas pressure from aerophagia enter the kidney and cause this physical internal damage, and/or augment the increased BP.
Avatar f tn What about your diet, a high protein intake can contribute to kidney stones. I can't imagine pain meds is the solution. Have you seen a different Urologist, for a second opinion?
538894 tn?1389310148 Take care of your diet. Avoid high protein diet, foods rich in sodium and take a nutritious diet. Doctors, parents, and patients should consider the risks of any sports activity and decide whether the benefits outweigh those risks to avoid trauma or serious damage to your kidney. Do write to me with more queries. Take care and regards!
Avatar f tn Hi, Based on your urinalysis results , were there other significant findings eg red blood cells, white blood cells, protein and casts? If kidney stones are a differential here, I suggest that you have a kidney ,ureter and bladder scan to rule this out. A serum uric acid levels as well as serum calcium and phosphate levels may also help. A 24 hour urine collection sample to determine quantitative protein levels in the urine may be necessary.
Avatar m tn I have been working out with weights for 25 years, eating high protein diet. For many years i have had a weird kindney problem. If i used Vitamin C tablets or Ibuprofen for several days to a week, then i would get kidney pain?? Im sure it's kidney pain, low back, under the ribs towards the sides. So i just stayed away from thoose two items for years. But now i have the same dull pain in my kidneys all the time. (2-3 on a pain scale) My recent bloodtest showed normal kreatinin levels.
Avatar f tn My biggest problem since then has been kidney infections. I usually have a lot of pain with the infections but then it goes away when the infection goes away. I usually have 5 or more a year. Is this normal for someone with MSK? They say I have no stones only calcification. Does the calcification make the infections reaccuring or are they separate issues and is there a way to get rid of the calcifications?
Avatar f tn Serositis – inflammation of the lining around the lungs (pleuritis) or inflammation of the lining around the heart that causes chest pain which is worse with deep breathing (pericarditis) 7. Kidney disorder – persistent protein or cellular casts in the urine 8. Neurological disorder – seizures or psychosis 9.
Avatar f tn Hi All, I'm 46, female with joint pain, swelling and kidney pain, malaise when I eat most protein. This seemed to be triggered by a nasty virus with a sore throat and fever about 2 1/2 years ago. Around 12-hours after I eat ANY type of meat or seafood, my hands and feet get very painful, swollen, redness and stiffness. Feels like my hands have been slammed in a door. I also can feel swelling and pain in my face, breasts at times. The more I eat, the worse the reaction.
Avatar f tn I don't know a lot on the medical end but do agree the numbers are high. I wouldn't give up though. When my Sammie was diagnosed, after changing her diet and giving her some meds, her numbers went down and she was in my life 9 months more than expected. One of the things your vet can do is give her fluids. I cooked for Sammie (organic chicken with the skin, high grade ground pork and mixed with Tapioca). For meds, she was on 1/2 a Tums (she was a small dog), a famotidine...
Avatar f tn This is quite complex, because it is essential to keep her on a low phosphorous and low protein diet (to prevent further damage to the kidneys), while still aiming to give an adequate amount of protein and more calories so she doesn't lose more weight. Eventually, it will make no difference what you feed - as it will by then be more important to get her to eat whatever she will eat just to acquire some energy - but for now, the above regime is worthwhile following, if you can.
Avatar f tn So much depends on the nature of the protein (high or low quality) and the stage of the kidney disease. Therefore, giving protein (in the form of meat and poultry) is always necessary, but the blood levels are an important indicator of how much to give. This is why diet changes are not a one-off thing at the start of kidney failure diagnosis, but a continuous process throughout the course of the illness.
82861 tn?1333457511 Many vets are still under the misguided impression that dogs in renal failure should have a no-protein, or low-protein diet because proteins are digested in the kidneys. This leads to malnutrition issues because dogs must have protein for general health. What you want is a more easily digestible form of protein that is low in phosphorus, and that means home cooking. At this stage of the game, anything you can get your dog to eat is a victory.
