Here is a link to the National Institutes of health info for physicians. I found some info that indicates that 0.8 grams of protein per KG (2.2 pounds) is sufficient for normal body functioning. That works out to about .4 grams per pound. Since body builders do about 1 - 1.5 grams per pound, 0.4 should be fine for the average Joe or Josephine.
How do you keep track of how much protein you are taking in? I use a program called Diet Power but there are some free apps out there including one on Livestrong.
Salt free, fat free, dairy free, gluten free, Low protein, High Fiber, HIGH FLAVOR Use low potassium vegetables, leach the sweet potatoes to keep the phosphorous down
When I went vegan I adapted this from a Peruvian seafood staple. The sweet potato with the lemon and onion is surprisingly delicious and refreshing. There is a lot of chopping, but it is worth the effort. You can serve with rice or flour tortillas (not calculated into nutrient content) if you need a little more “filler”.
I recently had the opportunity to participate in a phone conference with Questcor pharmaceuticals that was hosted by Nephcure. Questcor is the manufacturer of Acthar Gel. Because I'm taking this medication, I had a very special interest in participating...I mean, how often do you get the chance to speak directly with the manufacturer of your medications?
I'm not currently a dialysis patient. However, when my kidney function started to decline and I started to do some research, I headed to YouTube, where I was horrified at some of the things I saw.
Since then, I've been able to see some fistulas that are hardly even noticeable, so I was wondering if there are more of you out there that would be willing to show yours.
