Can you tell me if i only eat protein, in large amounts for a very long time could i get metabolic acidosis?

Can you tell me if i only eat protein, in large amounts for a very long time could i get metabolic acidosis?

Maybe: As dietary protein is broken down, acids are produced. The more protein intake, the more acids produced. Healthy kidneys can help excrete these acids as well as contribute to generation of a system to buffer the acids in the blood. However if kidney disease develops, the kidney capacity to handle an acid load is diminished and can lead to a metabolic acidosis. Hope this answers your question. ...Read more

Diet (Definition)

refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more

Results of Comprehensive Metabolic Panel says Low Protein

WhT do I do?

LOW PROTEIN: Hello ~ at age 89y it most likely means that there is not enough protein in your diet. If you increase FISH and MEAT and poultry in your diet this will correct. You can also increase protein by drinking BOOST or ENSURE protein drinks as well. Don't overdo them because if you do they give you diarrea! But 1 twice a day would be great ! thanks ...Read more

Vegetables, especially beans, are relatively high in protein value so be careful of smoothies and even v8 type juices.Milk and other dairy products have relatively high protein.

Not an easy question: If this was one reading it may not mean much. Lab tests like those described often fluctuate. If you are concerned, ask for the tests to be repeated and ask your physician to interpret the findings as compared to the original tests. ...Read more

Is it safe to dismiss a positive ANA speckled with a titer of 1:640 if CBC ok. Lupus panel negative. Metabolic ok. Urine ok. Serum protein ok?

Is it safe to dismiss a positive ANA speckled with a titer of 1:640 if CBC ok. Lupus panel negative. Metabolic ok. Urine ok. Serum protein ok?

Yes and no: We have a saying in pathology / lab medicine, "treat the person, not the labs." plenty of healthy folks have medium-titer speckled ana's. The real question is, "do we want to treat you for lupus or whatever, with all the unpleasantness that this involves?" i think the answer is "no" based on what you're shared if your physician agrees. Remember the ANA should new symptoms develop. Good question. ...Read more

My temp after i get to work is 99.1-99.4 . Evening and over night normal. I am ANA +1:640 spec pattern. High sed rate. Cbc ok. Metabolic ok. Serum protein ok. Lupus panel neg. Up back pain 1yr. Mri ok?

Yes: Mri is fine but be prepared for normal results. An elevated sed rate and ANA may indicate an inflammatory process in the body. A thorough work up would include hormone evaluation, sleep patterns, infection/immune system testing as well as nutrition review. These presentations can be frustrating so find a doctor that will take the time to listen and evaluate. ...Read more

Up back pain for 1 yr. Right flank burning. Elev sed rate. Ana + spec 1:640. Lupus panel neg. Cbc ok. Metabolic panel ok. Serum protein ok. Urine ok?

Get renal studies.: This might be nonspecific back muscle pain due to your being overweight or possible something more serious, like herniated disc with nerve compression or possible kidney issue, although kidney/ureter pain would likely be lower. You do have "burning" right flank which still can be kidney involvement. It might be a good idea to see your doctor to get your labs looked at, and an exam to find out. ...Read more

Should I eat according to my metabolic type? Or is metabolic typing just a theory?

Should I eat according to my metabolic type? Or is metabolic typing just a theory?

Not even a theory: It's rubbish, intended to sell books without any scientific basis. Eat sensibly, avoid tobacco and other addictions, and exercise. If you get focused on there being some other key to health, or read a lot of "diagnose yourself" websites, they'll get your money and time and you'll never feel well again. ...Read more

Mom - type 2 diabetic|b.P| creat-6.1, bun -59 (jul 3, 2013). Mom followed low protein diet with her medcn & today crea -5.23, bun -60..Is it promising?

Not much: Although the creatinine improved some a creatinine of either 5.2 or 6.1 is still very high and indicates severe kidney damage has already been done. Your mother should be followed very closely by a nephrologist and try to keep blood pressure controlled sugar is she is diabetic to try and prevent any further worsening. ...Read more

What is a balanced diet for a 3 year old boy? How many times per week does he have to eat meat and chicken? And does other types of proteins like eggs

Kids are great: They tend to eat what they need. They may eat one thing for a week and then stop it and move on to something else. They may eat nothing for days and then eat very well again. Provide him with healthy choices and he will choose what to eat. I worry less about "making" them eat certain things. Some prefer fruits to veggies. Some like meat and others refuse all meat. It is all ok. ...Read more

What is the best type of exercise and diet for someone with a genetic metabolic myopathy such as CPT II deficiency?

What is the best type of exercise and diet for someone with a genetic metabolic myopathy such as CPT II deficiency?

Different approach: Not so easy with a metabolic muscle disease. Mostly would suggest very low exertion activities, and at first sign of cramping, rest immediately. Swimming might not be a bad choice but would do with companion in shallow water. Would definitely work with a physical therapist to fine tune all of this. ...Read more
