Avatar f tn I drink whey protein and use it for cookies, I also eat protein bars.
Avatar m tn With that said, there are different methods of whey production, such as ion-exchanged that can influence how well your body can utilize the protein, leading to improper digestion of the whey itself. The biggest fear often expressed about whey protein intake is that too much protein is “bad for the kidneys.” Research though has shown this is not true at all in healthy individuals. For those with known kidney disease, high protein diets can exacerbate pre-existing conditions.
Avatar f tn and there are many things that have whey in them I never paid attention to before like ice cream, protein shakes and bars, even rice cakes. So who knows maybe watching those things could help. And don't forget to laugh :) that's the best medicine of all.
Avatar n tn There's no doubt a good quality protein supplement will help build bigger muscles -- the best is a good whey protein isolate, but there might be a reaction to the dairy -- but yes, you might pay a price. It depends of what you prefer, big muscles or health. The workout is fine, but taking any supplement that exaggerates intake of any nutrient so you get bigger muscles from that workout could lead to problems way down the road.
Avatar m tn Are there any indications for developing kidney stones by consuming Protein (whey?) supplements / powders for shakes for someone interested in weight training who has a history oxalate stones?
Avatar m tn Eggs and milkshakes (with skim milk) give you additional protein as the same as the protein shakes. The recommended dosage of protein is 1g per kg of weight. Body builders state that you need to build muscle that is why you need the protein. You will need a little extra but not double your weight. Too much consummation of protein and if the body does not use it, it will store it as fat. The side effects of too much protein are taxing to the kidneys.
Avatar f tn Whey protein is very good for building muscle if you're doing a lot of weight training, but you're not, and dairy products aren't necessarily digestible for most people. I'd as two questions: first, unless you eat pretty badly, why do you think you're not getting enough protein? Keep in mind that body builders eat a ton of protein, but they pay for it later with kidney and other problems, so don't go overboard; second, if you want to gain muscle, why aren't you doing weight training?
Avatar m tn for bodybuilders, more protein helps build muscle. The difference between taking BCAAs and the whey protein is you get more of them taking them separately than you get in a balanced protein supplement such as whey. Body builders overdose on everything in order to maximize their workouts -- they're not looking for health, they're looking for big muscles. Same with serious athletes of all kinds -- they're looking for an advantage, not health.
Avatar n tn While obviously not everyone could or should take in the amounts I do, the idea that there are set maximums that apply to everyone is falicy. You are however on the correct lines by taking whey protein. It has a biological value of 104 making it the best and most easily utalised form of protein known to man. It also has potent antioxidant properties. I personally use a 2lb tub every 2 days.
315996 tn?1429057829 I am worried because I don't eat many meat products I take whey protein powder after weight lifting and just as general mood inhancer. I guess I will back off the protein powder but now I'm wondering about stuff like fat free yogurt and milk and cottage cheese and beans. Kinda worried because of the importance of protein in the building blocks of our systems. I hate long posts but I guess I just made one!!!
Avatar f tn Candida (saliva test), Low gastric acid (baking soda burp test OR the Betaine HCL challenge) Not diagnostic, but indicative enough, so if positive, considering your symptoms and condition, they might be as a good as diagnostic! Have you tried Undenatured whey protein powder?
Avatar m tn I've consulted it to a nephrologist and he ordered repeat KUB UTZ and Urinalysis and the result was negative in protein, glucose, rbc, stone etc. and my kidney is in normal size, so he then conclude that I dont have any problem in kidney and told me to continue my meds carvedilol 25mg to control my essential hpn, no biopsy as for now but if I experience hematuria again it might be IgA nephropathy, follow up check up and renal biopsy will be needed.
Avatar m tn , instead, taking in small liquid amounts form natural sources such as 2 to 4 ounces of green tea or coffee before, during, and after your big exercise event. Whey protein or another protein, like brown rice protein is important for building muscle after a workout. Research shows that these protein sources can improve muscle synthesis, especially right after a work out.
Avatar n tn MOST stones are from what we EAT! MSG. NITRATES, soy protein, whey, just to name a few, ALL ADDITIVES to make food last longer. That is why you should eat FRESH FOOD, and really cut back on the protein. MILk, cheese, red meat, and soy. Read the labels on what you buy. Did you know that doritos are moslty just made out of preservatives? and TRIScuits, which you would think are healthy are full of MSG..As well as flavored rice a roni,hamburger helper mix, and the list goes on and on and on...

Avatar n tn I have been feeling this pain under my lower left abdominal area when i take a deep breath? is that the kidney? mybe i'm eating to much protein intake or something? mybe i worked the kidney hard..... please help , it has been 2 days i have been taking whey protien + amino acid supplements for 3 weeks now...
Avatar f tn Casein (approximately 80%) and Whey Protein (approximately 20%). Whey protein is more soluble than casein and also has a higher quality rating. It is often referred to as the "Gold Standard" of protein as it is the most nutritious protein available. Amino Acids make up protein. Protein makes up basically everything in your body. In fact the only thing our body has more of than protein is water. It really is as simple as that.
Avatar m tn I have been suffering an ache in my lower left area next or in the hip joint, i an assuming it is my bowels, i have a lot of gas at the moment and it relieves the pain and i do not suffer from this usually, it feels like a strain when i move at different angles and is making me go to the toilet more regular than normal. I have been taking whey protein shake for lunch every weekday for over a month now and creatine ethyl ester hcl powder in isotonic drinks.
Avatar f tn hi doctor i have stones in my kidney so i take himalya cystone as medicine now i want to take whey protein and creatine with this so plz advice me is this safe for my health ?
Avatar m tn Brands include Designer Whey 100% Whey Protein and BSN Syntha-6 Protein Powder. Read our report on protein drinks. What you need to know Most athletes are already consuming more protein than their bodies can process and increasing your intake past that amount isn’t going to help you get bigger or stronger. A 2010 Consumer Reports investigation found that some protein shakes, if consumed frequently, could expose people to potentially toxic levels of arsenic, cadmium, and lead.
Avatar m tn Hi The effect of whey protein on mice has been studied but the effect of whey protein on the human body is still under study. Whey protein is supposed to help fight against cancer and infection. Many side effects like kidney stones, hair loss, liver damage, joint problems etc have been reported. However the actual effect this protein, used as a commercial substitute, can only be known when clinical trials on human beings are successful.
Avatar n tn I am a male of 39yrs I have creatinine of 1.
Avatar m tn The main ones in the diet are garlic, onions and the cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, kale, collards, cabbage, cauliflower, watercress, etc.). 2. Try bioactive whey protein. This is great source of cysteine and the amino acid building blocks for glutathione synthesis. As you know, I am not a big fan of dairy. But this is an exception -- with a few warnings.
Avatar m tn I must add that I am a very active recreational athlete (mainly heavy weight-lifting 4 times a week and running 2 - 3 times a week for 30 - 45mins). I also take protein supplements (about 70g whey protein) with about 2g of creatine monohydrate daily. I do not take any other supplements and have never dabbled in steroids or diuretics. Do I need to worry about my BUN and creatinine levels or is this normal for an athlete such as myself?
Avatar n tn You can try a different whey protein. I personally like the Nature's Life brand of protein powders, especially the one with spriulina, which gives a bit of extra energy, but personally I don't use them. I'm more concerned with health than muscle definition, so when I go to the gym it's to work out, not to look like Arnold.
Avatar n tn Apart from that if you are not able to handle the protein load in your diet then it could lead to Kidney damage. You need to keep a periodic check on kidney functions. Keep me informed if you have any queries. Bye.
Avatar f tn IMHO there are better options for a more digestable protein but I'm a lil bias anyway lol. I LOVE Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Natural Whey in Natural Chocolate.
Avatar n tn In my case I think oat or whey protein is just something My unique system needs more of and not meaty protein. There might also be other factors to the plant source that is perfect for the body to make the protein substance, Maybe some Glutamate and other ammino's essential for this function. The first write-up about the spitting also make sense.
757137 tn?1347200053 As for the amount of glutathione if whey, it's in all protein, not just whey, and dairy can be a problem for people, especially those with a possible liver problem. The two best ways to get glutathione is by taking the amino acids that form glutathione, since glutathione itself is considered very difficult to get into the system as a supplement.
