Eating only total of 80grams of protein each day for my kidney dis-ease is very hard, to give you an idea look at your hand, from the base of your fingers to the tips = 80grams.......If i want to delay dialysis I MUST MAINTAIN AND CHANGE. Does anyone else have stories of encouragement of how they have changed their diets for imminent/related health detriments from cancer, I would love to hear your success stories for positiveness to draw on. Thank you Jules
Nobody out there is managing kidney dis-ease and managing protien intake?

Hi Jules...I'm not going through kidney disease, but protein intake is important for the repair of damaged tissue and muscle. I have a protein shake every morning. I have purchased a protein powder that has 31 grams per scooop. Every morning I put 1 banana, milk, a small bit of vanilla ice cream, honey and cinnamon into the blender. I try to eat as much chicken and turkey breast as possible as they are also high in protein. I hope this helps. 🙂
