  • Bodybuilding??!

    I would love to try bodybuilding, not to the extreme of course but certainly be a bit more focussed on diet and exercise with regards to increasing muscle.

    But I'm so confused firstly about diet - being on PD, should I be on high protein? Fruit and veg and potassium/phosphates, just everything is very confusing!

    And also weights - on PD you're obviously advised to avoid heavy lifting...

    Anyone got any advice on this?

    If you don't eat a decent amount of protein you wont see muscle increase. You can get more defined and eat away at the fat. Obviously refer to your bi-weekly blood draw and make sure youre staying within the recommended range.

    As for lifting, I lifted hard when I was on PD. Obviously drain out completely before going to the gym, but other than that you should be fine.

        Proper diet with good amount of protein and carbohydrates.
        It is also very important to lift weights properly in gym.

          Do NOT take any body-bulding supplements without asking your nephrologist first. Many of them will screw-up your blood values.

            Go natural man, do not take body building supplements, do your daily and make
            a good diet plan and then stick to it.

              Were you allow to use free weights or did you use machine weights?

                  I would be afraid to seriously engage in bodybuilding in such a situation. First you need to establish a diet and smoothly introduce physical activity into your daily routine, for example, you can ride a bike (like this), walk with your family - something like that. If your condition improves, then you can draw up an exercise plan with the doctor and coach

                    Epo raises your blood pressure. When I was seeing a hematologist for Epo shots prior to dialysis, they would not give me a dose if my bp was way high. garage service
