I  want to know if cretanine and microclbumin levels come down with meds or by controlling diet.What foods to be avoided in kidney issues. Pls help.

Once someone with diabetes insipidus begins treatment are they able to resume a diet with moderate sodium (after being on a very low sodium diet)?

Is it good for a person with diabetes (type 2) to drink diet soda to keep hydrated?

Is it good for a person with diabetes (type 2) to drink diet soda to keep hydrated?

Not really: Diet sodas do not help with weight loss, and usually have a heavy load of phosphoric acid. The artificial sweeteners paradoxically increase the need for sweets elsewhere in the diet. You can have 1 or 2 12oz servings without much downside. More than that is excessive. The best hydrating agent is simply water. It is less expensive, healthier, and has no side effects. Water is a better than soda. ...Read more
