My wife has been on CCPD for about 7-8 months now. The big problem right now with her numbers is that het P levels are extremely high. She started with Phoslo, then she tried Renvela for a while but her numbers are still high. Renvela is a powder that you dissolve in a fluid but let me tell ya, this stuff barely dissolves and leaves all the gritty stuff on the bottom of your glass you have to keep stirring. Anyway I do not recommend. Now she is on Calcium Acetate tablets 667 mg. These are tablets that you have to grind to a powder and sprinkle over your food, I hope this will have better results?
We try to stick to all the davita recipes on the site an we barely eat any processed food with high P level. I wonder if anybody has more advice for her(us)?
The other issue is that she has low protein levels and the dietician at the davita clinic keeps telling her to eat a lot of meat. But how much meat can a person eat? We eat meat every day, there must be another source of getting more protein in your diet? I bought whey protein to mix with water and that seems to help a little bit. I have found an article about foods with high protein fvor vegetarians. You can find this here:
Which foods are good for renal patients? Can she have foods with a lot of soybeans since that seems to be high in protein.??? I belive beans are high in phosphorus?
She also is diabetic and has had quintiple bypass surgery in 2007, they also removed her gallblatter.She still has a litl function in her kidneys.She is 42 yrs old.
Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated
