Can you drink slim fast with kidney diease?

I have lots more to say, but 400 words is not enough. Suffice to say, stay away from Slim Fast! Eat whole foods instead. ...Read more

I just saw something on tv from lawyers saying Benicar (olmesartan) causing kidney problems .i been on it 2 years and I am fine.is it safe to continue it?

Olmesartan: In my mind those lawyers are irresponsible and probably cause more harm than good by creating confusion and doubt. Benicar (olmesartan) (olemsartan) is very safe and well tolerated. As with all meds and everything in life there is a chance of things going wrong. Chance is very low. FDA does not approve unsafe drugs. Docs in general are very prudent prescribers. Do not stop the med. Talk with your doc. ...Read more

1-2 grams/kg: Average would be one gram of protein per kg of body weight. Two would be the upper limit of grams per kg of body weight to take as protein if you want to avoid kidney problems. Always keep yourself well hydrated with at least a gallon of water a day to keep the kidney working and help flush out excess protein. ...Read more
