Should someone with kidney disease limit eating meat since kidneys work harder when consume too much of it?  What to eat?

Talk 2 ur kidney doc: Most americans eat way more protein than necessary. 3-4oz of protein is no more than your fist or a deck of cards. You don't need 16-24oz steak each night. But your protein limitation also depends upon your kidney's level of (dys)function.

Is there a connection between long-term kidney disease and bone health issues?

Is there a connection between long-term kidney disease and bone health issues?

Bone and kidney: People with chronic kidney disease stage 3 and higher can develop problems with their bones. This is due to a deficit of vit d made by the diseased kidney and causes a low serum calcium (c) level due to its not being absorbed by the intestine. In response to this parathyroid hormone is secreted to raise c by liberating it from bone. Phosphorus (p) is also liberated. This action weakens the bones. ...Read more

I have nephrotic syndrome (kidney disease) and i want to use a kidney detox from a health store or the chemist, is it a good idea?

Do not take a chance: You already have a kidney damage, it does not make sense to use so called " kidney detox" from a health store which contain un tested( many time un safe ) ingredients. You are under the impression that these are from health stores and natural, hence they are safe! far from it, alarming numbers are dangerous.

Does a person who tends to get kidney stones have 'kidney disease?" Seems like my Urologist told me I have it. What steps 2 take to be healthy?

Not really: "Kidney disease" usually means actual long-term damage to the filters or tubules. Kidney stones can cause tubular damage if the kidneys get infected as a result. Your best move is to drink plenty of water, enough so your urine is never dark but always near-clear. Specific stone compositions have specific regimens that may help. ...Read more
