What Causes Too Much Protein In The Blood
Can it be that too much ketones in the urine due to low food intake in the long run cause my type 1diabetes?

Much more likely related to some type of infection that led to an immune response by your body that went awry, leading to the antibodies attacking your poor pancreas and leaving it non-functional.

Why does too much dietary intake of sodium possibly lead to a stroke or TIA? Is it that the blood level gets too high or the blood pressure?
Dietary sodium: This is a sophisticated question. The answer is complicated. Dietary sodium (salt) tends to increase the circulating blood volume; some people are more sensitive than others. Kidney neurohormonal factors regulating the blood pressure are affected. In the end it is high blood pressure which over many years can damage arteries and lead to increased risk of heart attack and stroke. ...Read more

Too much is no good: No storage-all for structure and function (enzymes to do chem reactions). Can only add so much into the body/day. Intake in excess needs to be dealt with. Xs nitrogen in protein dealt as waste product by kidneys-might strain and increase damage to already damaged kidneys. Xs intake broken down to components-carbon chain into glucose and stored as glycogen or fat. 0.8-1.5gm/kg wt is plenty for most. ...Read more
No: No. Sometimes patients have both low protein and low blood pressure but it is not a cause of it. Low protein can lead to extravascular fluid accumulation (edema) and can make you intravascularly dehydrated which could theoretically lead to lower blood pressures but this is typically insignificant so long as your kidneys are working normally. ...Read more
