Vegetarian "meat": If you eat a variety of vegetables, legumes, and whole grains, you will get all the protein you need. Meat analogues certainly have lots of protein, but one drawback is that they are highly processed. They also tend to be high in sodium.

If I have a low iron count, what tests should be done to figure out the cause? Dietary intake should have been sufficient (lots of meat and greens)
Whoa: I'm going to assume that someone is not using the term "iron count" as a synonym for hemoglobin / hematocrit, but that you have an actual low measured serum iron and high iron binding capacity. If not, other causes of anemia must be sought. If you do, check for GI blood loss unless your monthly loss is very heavy. Contrary to "pop" disinformation, greens aren't a source of iron. Glad UR proactive. ...Read more

Realize: As we get older out kidney function does slowly decline. Think of the kidney as being made up of a million Brita filters. As we age, some of those filter stop working.

Be aware even your diet(as you mention) and/or muscle mass can affect this value with suggestion of a problem. ...Read more

Mean fluid intake 2.5L,mean urinary output 700ml.Creatinine,BUN,uroanalysis,proteins all normal.No hot days,no much sweating.What could cause low out?
Staying hydrated: You probably began your experiment dehydrated. There are of course "insensible losses" or volume losses that can't be measured-- mostly this is from the humidified breath. That can amount to 0.5 L right there. You also lose water in the stool... You could account for that. Try the experiment when your urine is clear- when you are not mildly dehydrated. I think you will get better results. ...Read more
