Whey, animal, & soy protein. In order, which is best for muscle building, why, and how great is the difference between them?
Will USANA's Nutrimeal will increase my Uric Acid Level because it has 15 grams of soy, whey, and other proteins. Is it okay to drink it? Thank you :)
Not in small amounts: High protein intake, defined as more the 1-1.3 gm/kg body weight will begin to increase the uric acid which is a breakdown product of protein. Increase uric acid will be a risk factor for gout. So estimate your protein intake from food and supplements and use supplements only to keep intake in normal range, not higher than 1.3 gm/kg body weight. ...Read more
I'm on a diet containing soy protein (Cambridge diet). Is it save for me if I take whey protein I have no allergic to dairy products. Thank you in ad?
I have 4 kidney stones. I would like to start using a protein shake for working out. Would I be better off to use a whey or soy because of my kidney stones?
Kidney stones: Animal protein is the riskiest protein. It is more acid and the acid releases calcium from bone. Soy has some oxalate, another risk for stones. Whey has no oxalate. I think whey is a bit "preferred". Keep total grams per day of all protein less than 60 gm. Drink 4 liters fluid per day. Include 4 tblspns ReaLemon extract per day. Minimize animal protein and oxalate foods. ...Read more

Is it normal to have protein in the urine w/a gallbladder sludge? Does it mean something could be wrong w/pancreas if protein present in urine?
Separate problem: Protein in the urine is a separate problem from gallbladder sludge/stones and can be serious. Kidney damage that can lead to kidney failure is associated with protein in the urine. Okay to talk to your doc about additional risks for kidney problems, (diabetes, hypertension, elevated phosphorous). Also okay to ask about surgery referral for cholecystectomy. ...Read more
Mild diffuse infiltration fatty liver and low function gallbladder protein 8.4 bilirubin total 2.0 1.76 and diect 0.27 is this due to fatty liver?
Probably not: With the majority of your bilirubin being indirect, i.e. Unconjugated, you probably have gilbert's syndrome, which is the most common hereditary cause of increased bilirubin and is found in 5-10% of the population and is due to the reduced activity of the enzyme glucuronyltransferase. Bilirubin levels may increase under conditions of exertion, stress, fasting, and infections but is benign. ...Read more

Could protein pump inhibitors cause gallbladder problem (no stones, but CK Hida Scan 25%)? Might gallbladder condition improve if I stop taking PPI?
PPI: PPI's reduce the acid in your stomach. By reducing the acid in the stomach you reduce some of the digestive functions of protein breakdown and release of pancreatic enzymes. Changing these digestive functions can affect the gallbladder. However, this may not be the only thing contributing to the gall bladder dysfunction. ...Read more
Hida scan 7% ef. Pain low grade fevers. Surgeon questions gallbladder as cause. How can that be. To have ultra soy d. Neg and CT opinions wanted?
GB stiff: Even though no stones, the gallbladder muscle can become sluggish and not eject bile like it should. The hidda scan discovers this dysfunction in way gb works to eject bile into the intestine. The other studies (including ultrasound and ct) look at architecture and not function. That is why the hidda scan is more useful to determine that gb is cause of your right upper abdominal pain. ...Read more
Fatty liver and bad gallbladder. Protein is 8.4 bilirubin was 2.0 also may have strep throat. What could this be. Why would protein be high?
Fatty liver bad gallbladder: liver enzymes good protein 8.4 billibruin 20. What could it be? Possibilty of strep throat
Question vague: You need to be seen and evaluated by a doctor asap. A bilirubin of 20mg/dl suggests either obstruction to biliary flow, severe damage to the liver itself (as in hepatitis), breakdown of red blood cells or other conditions. It is unlikely that strep throat has anything to do with this. Go and see a doctor as quickly as you can. Good luck. ...Read more

Controversial: There is much debate about whey protein, derived from dairy, regarding its effects on health. I don't believe one should get protein from dairy and prefer non-animal sources like quinoa, nuts and beans. I also like wild salmon for protein and mostly healthy fats. Books like the china study demonize whey and claim it causes cancer and autoimmune disease. No one knows for sure so use other sources. ...Read more
Stay hydrated: A danger of creatine is kidney failure. Do not take more than directed and do not take the loading dose for a prolonged period. Stay hydrated! Some baseball players were hospitalized from excess creatine use causing renal shutdown. Whey protein is generally safe but excess protein is also hard on the kidneys. Again drink plenty of water. ...Read more

Kidney problems: Whey protein is a milk derivative. If you are lactose intolerant this will not help you build muscle b/c it will lead to bloating and abdominal pain. If you have no lactose intolerance, it is a good source of protein. Men need about 1.2-1.7g/kg/daily of protein to help build muscle mass. Creatine builds muscle but with all protein you MUST drink alot of water since it is hard on the kidneys. ...Read more
