Lt ankle/foot always swollen slight-large amt, 2yrs. Bun/creatinine levels run high. High protein intake. No salt-restricted diet. Causes of swelling?

Renal & venous probs: An elevated BUN & creatinine for 2 yrs. Means that you have chronic renal disease. You are on the worst possible diet for this, which should be low protein and low sodium. The swelling may be due to this + chronic venous insufficiency, which is more likely--for anatomic reasons--to occur in left leg. An internist specializing in kidney disease (nephrologist) is whose care you should be under. ...Read more

NOt good idea: Animal organs are even higher in cholesterol than the meat. I do not suggested animal organs to reduce meat intake. Instead, I would suggest more fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds. ...Read more

Will meat analogues help with protein intake?

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. Use them sparingly if you do use them to wean off flesh-based food. ...Read more

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)

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

Creatinine Clearance (Est) L 73.3600 mL/min 75.0 - 115.0: Why is my level low? Is it because I'm a small 64/ female and eat no red meat?

Creatinine Clearance (Est)	L	 73.3600	mL/min	 75.0 - 115.0:  Why is my level low? Is it because I'm a small 64/ female and eat no red meat?

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. If you have blood pressure, cholesterol, and/or other vascular issues even more of these filters can 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

Bun=21
Creatinine=1.1
Protein intake=120gms 50gms through whey and 15 gms bcca during intraworkout.do Moderately Intense exercise 5to6 days for 1 hr.

Water is key: Both numbers are essentially ok. With that much protein, you really need to make sure you stay well hydrated. With intense exercise there are muscle breakdown products that can potentially be harmful if they cause blockages in your kidneys. Proper hydration will help prevent this from occurring and keep your performance level high. ...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
