Common Questions and Answers about Too much protein kidney disease


Avatar m tn i have kidney disease my creantine 2.12 my gfr 33.5 my normal is 1.
793908 tn?1294708709 It is information about the false reasoning behind using low protein diets such as Hill's K/D for kidney disease. It also lists supplements and pretty much everything there is about kidney disease in dogs, and lists excellent commercial diets suitable for kidney disease. I hope this helps!
Avatar f tn Hello there, I was diagnosed with stage 4 kidney disease about 2 years ago and now I am in complete kidney failure. As for time no one can tell you that. But my advice to you is to take your meds as your doctor tells you and take good care of yourself. I did not follow my doctors advice and now I am on dialysis 3 times a week 4 hours a day.
Avatar m tn High Triglycerides were detected in 'Steffie' long before her UPC and MA(Microalbuminuria) showed Chronic Kidney disease/Protein Loosing Nephropathy....AND.....'Steffie' WAS NOT obise, NOR was her Cholesterol level ever out of the normal range via blood tests. I believe that the blood test for triglycerides is a seperate test of regular blood profile tests, but Tony can verify this. On every blood test paperwork, the attending DVM would state the 'Possible Causes' of the Hypertriglyceridemia.
Avatar f tn From when I was 21 until I was 38 I had reasonably normal health, I took my medication, avoided too much protein and kept active. I travelled extensively overseas, attended university, had relationships, bought a house, developed an excellent career and did most of the things I had dreamt I might do (I say 'most' because I haven't gotten around to doing everything yet, I'm always adding something new). When I was 38 my kidney function had dropped to about 50%.
Avatar f tn My dog was diagnosed with kidney disease last year. I switched his food and also started giving him a herbal tonic called Tripsy from PetWellbeing. Since he's been on it, its like I have my old dog back. Please don't give up hope just yet. Check out Tripsy and ask your vet about it as well. Good Luck! http://www.petwellbeing.
Avatar n tn It is a combination of the medical status of the patient and the clinical judgment of the doctor. The doctor will keep evaluating your mother. Your mother does not have a kidney disease. She only has a renal insufficiency and needs to keep her blood sugar under strict control. Her problem is reversible so let’s hope for the best. By normal I guess you mean whether her kidney problem will resolve. My answer is yes, provided she keeps her blood sugar under control and there is no other problem.
Avatar f tn But I do agree with you that phosphorus is a real problem and needs careful restriction. Protein is a very complex element in canine kidney disease. 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.
Avatar f tn Daisy suffered with kidney disease for 13 months. The last 5 weeks were the worst though - her levels went up, she was barely eating, vomiting and diarrhea then she spent 5 days in the hospital getting IV fluids, medicine, etc. The first few days after the stay, she came home and refused to eat... settled on cat treats for a bit and had shots of cerenia twice to help with the nausea. She was never really quite the same after the hospital stay. She was very slow moving and sleepy.
603946 tn?1333945439 DO NOT GIVE YOUR DOG HOT DOGS!!!! Especially if he is struggling with kidney disease. There is too much crap including sodium in there. Your dog needs high quality protein for meals. I lost my beagle to CRF in February :( after 13 months of treatments. What did they give you for nausea? It's a bit expensive but cerenia comes in a shot form and works well. I would withhold food for 24-hours to get his stomach settled.
793908 tn?1294708709 The newest research for kidney disease is that a limited amount of high quality protein is helpful for kidney disease. Hill's K/D diet is used for kidney failure. Cream Cheese has very little protein in it and should be fine if your dog must be on a low protein diet. Eggs contain only 6 grams of protein (white has 3 grams, and the yolk has 3 grams).
3211536 tn?1359389169 I eat about eveery 2 hours which I know is good thing.I have a snack before bed too!I vaguely recall something about folks with liver disease not eating after 7:00pm.has anyone else got this info?Over the last 8 months I lost 30 pounds or so.Good cuz now I am 168 and can wear a junior 15 .hard way to loose weight. Been watching the benefit concert on the TV and it floors me that the "Stones"can still jump.
1832268 tn?1326819610 You helped her for more than a year and you are right, most people don't get that long out of a dog with kidney disease. Daisy had about 13 months too. The disease is manageable if treated early, but it is not curable. I think that's where we all get confused. We'd love to save our sweet doggies but once we learn of their disease it's often too late. Daisy had a sudden drop in January and spent 4 nights in the doggy ER. Once I brought her home, she was never the same.
942127 tn?1276952809 It is so very obvious in two, but the other, Onyx, has pretty much been a loner and wasn't around Mochie that much. She got to see her before we buried her too, so maybe that is making a difference. Maybe I should have seen to it that the other 2 did as well. Snickers has been watching and listening for her at the times she normally would see her and going to the door of the bedroom that Mochie chose for her final weeks. I am not sure she has slept much since Tuesday for all her waiting.
Avatar n tn I am sure if your doctor was really concerned he would have done the egfr, it is the most accurate diagnosis of kidney disease. kidney disease has 5 stages. Tell your doctor you want your egfr measured. Even a mild urine infection can cause traces of protein in the urine ie protein is found in blood and with a uti it is common to have a small amount of blood in the urine - hence trace of protein as well.
Avatar f tn The general consensus is that protein does not need restricting in stages 1 and 2 of chronic kidney disease - but it does need restricting in stages 3 and 4. The ideal is for high quality protein to be fed in these later stages, but that it doesn't amount to more than around 10% of the daily intake of food. When restricting protein, it's important to substitute it with other viable energy sources.
Avatar f tn Hi there, In medullary sponge kidney disease there is fluid retention in the ducts of your kidneys. Diet and exercise can lessen the severity of kidney stones which may form. Organic diet may be helpful. A diet low in high protein foods like meat, low in high oxalate foods like spinach, rhubarb, peanuts, and low in sodium may help. A diet high in fiber like fruits, vegetables can be very helpful. Vitamin A is helpful in preventing the formation of stones.
Avatar f tn Never take protein powder unless you read the label and ensure that these and other dangerous chemicals are not present. Too many protein shakes can lead to weight gain! If you consume too much protein, your body may end up storing the extra protein as body fat. Excessive and long-term protein can cause chronic kidney disease, kidney stones, and liver damage. Speak to your parents and your doctor first.
Avatar f tn Heya Sandy, My father has diabetes too, and the information he is passing on to me in no way should take away from the advise you get from your G.P. As you know your diabetes condition could affect other organs in your body. If you are in any doubt see your G.P, and investigate. The kidneys primary function is to maintain the fluid balance in the body and to excrete unwanted soluble chemicals.
793908 tn?1294708709 thats Kidney related. It came back +3 for protein...too high. She also had a 8 hour Dexamethon Suppression test that day. ( that test showed the following for her kidneys & she tested posirive for Cushings, in Adrenal glands) Her protein/creatin ratio is 8.2. Too High. Her Bun & Creatin for Kidneys is NORMAL. HUH??? I am a bit confused here. My vet said he put Julie on the Hills KD because of her Kidney value=too much protein, NOT the Cushings as I thought.
Avatar m tn Don't worry about being confused by all the information, contradictions, and mis-information "out there" about diets for kidney failure dogs. Because I certainly was! My dog was diagnosed just over 2 weeks ago with early-stage kidney failure.
Avatar f tn I knew I had one and remember passing a bunch of blood and junk, and the pass passed too. So they assumed I passed it. Too much of the ureter could not be see because of the baby. Hopefully the fullness and pain are related to the position of the baby and by finding this now they can prevent you getting the stone patterns we have. If you suffer with a lot of bladder pain issues I would recommend you taking D-Mannose and lots of water to prevent infections.
315996 tn?1429057829 salt info is like the first and last letter of your health ins.B then S salt is essential for life, too much is removed by kidneys, body tells us when we need it....if you take lots of supplements you may get too much, what does you main blood panel show. now if you want to get into man made salts like MSG etc...then we'll be here for hours....3 words. NO TACO BELL.....
14652685 tn?1435697030 Because what is worrying to me is that low carb and high protien diets also cause the same symptoms you are having. Too much protien and not enough carbs will force the body to eat your muscles and take protien as a fuel because you aren't giving your body enough carbs, and forcing your body to use protien as a fuel is toxic and creates ketones, that will ultimately cause kidney and liver damage and eventually death.
Avatar f tn I know many people assume that dogs with kidney disease should be on a low protein diet. That's not really true. While protein is processed in the kidneys, it's the phosphorus that causes the trouble to escalate. You just want a more easily digestible fom of protein. Avoid organ meats in particular - they're loaded with phosphorus. Same thing for bones. Eventually, it won't matter what you make - anything you can get into his tummy is a victory.
Avatar m tn been giving him boiled chicken and hotdogs. Any help on low protein foods appreiciated. He has perked up so much since I brought him home and can get him to eat. he has also lost a ton weigh down to only 60 lbs. How long do dogs usually live with this?
Avatar n tn An endo specializes in diabetes and sees a lot of kidney damage or kidney disease issues and can distinguish between them. Kidney damage could be serious; OTOH it can also be similar to "knee damage" when we fall & scrape our knees. We might be sore for a while & we might get a bruise or a scab, but the knee still does its intended function. Are you taking any blood pressure medicine?
793908 tn?1294708709 My mini poodle Julie has Cushings Disease & is being treated with Trilostane...(her body has way too much protein). She is on Hills KD & likes it now. I was giving her Cream Cheese in order for her to take her pills..she hates pills. Also, low fat Cottage Cheese as a "treat" at night...only 3 teaspoons. I also gave her one hard boiled egg every day for many years for breakfast. Now I give her only the egg white. No yolk. My Vet said to take her off all dairy...
Avatar f tn Hi. My mom was diagnosed with Stage 3 Kidney Disease 6 months or so ago. She is morbidly obese and has type 2 diabetes and extremely uncontrolled high blood pressure, and a severe panic disorder. She started a low carb/high protein diet when she was diagnosed. She has lowered the amount of insulin she needs from 160 units a day to 60 units which is great. But since this diet her high blood pressure has sky rocketed. We were in the ER twice last week with blood pressures greater than 200.
