Amyloidosis, all my symptoms , heart, liver high ggt, brain, neurological, gasrto and urinary, lungs. GFR not released, what is the genetic blood test?
Self-diagnosis?: Amyloidosis can mimic anything. It's not especially treatable so there's no hurry diagnosing it. Ask about a serum protein electrophoresis and urine test for Bence-Jones for amyloid AL. Amyoid AF is a neuropathy / pain syndrome and I wouldn't waste the money. Amyloid AA labwork isn't specific; it's rare in the absence of leprosy etc. I'd have a fat biopsy -- maybe you actually do have it. ...Read more
Yes: And bad for your kidneys too. Balance, balance, balance. Low carb, low fat, high protein - none of these make sense. Eat what you enjoy in moderate amount - no supersizing. Eat for hunger, not for boredom or stress. Don't eat mindlessly. Avoid junk food. No snacking after dinner. No binging. If you follow these simple rules, you will lose weight. Aim for 1-2 lbs a week.

My father (83) has pacemaker installed for 15 years (ischemic heart). His kidneys have weakened (creatinine 3.9). What diet restrictions (proteins, k)?
How 2 loose weight without loosing muscle just by diet? I can't do strenuous exercises cuz of my age(57) &heart condition. Can high protein diet help?
No: You can avoid metabolizing muscle by 1) losing weight slowly, e.g. 1-2 lbs per week, and 2) doing mild to moderate exercise. You don't have to be strenuous. Swimming or even just short (enjoyable) walks will suffice. It doesn't have to be all at once. You get just as much benefit from 2 fifteen minute walks as 1 thirty minute walk. Avoid a very low calorie diet. Aim for 500 calories < daily need. ...Read more
I heard that you are supposed to eat protein 30 minutes after you work out also heart you can eat protein before during and after you work out?
My wife's heart will go irregular (pausing randomly), weakness, "freaky feeling", etc. Usually food (esp protein) will help; does not have diabetes.
She needs evaluated: This is not normal. She could be having extra beats or random arrhythmias. Can be due to electrolyte (sodium/potassium) abnormalities, or a valve problem, or an electrical disturbance. She needs to discuss this with her doctor for appropriate workup. It could be nothing, but i strongly suggest she not ignore this. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
