ChRlieB53 for cholesterol checkout out the sustained release


Sustained-release/extended-release niacin causes less flushing. However, some over-the-counter formulations may be less effective and increase the risk of liver toxicity. The extended-release form sold by prescription (Niaspan is the best-known brand) is effective, least likely to cause in≠≠tense flushing and safer for the liveróbut it costs even more than brand-name statins. An over-the-counter sustained-release preparation called Slo-Niacin is similar to Niaspan but much less expensive."

I can be pretty dense sometimes and concepts escape me.  What I am having a problem with is figuring out exactly what plant based proteins, and HOW MUCH of each will I need to replace much of the animal flesh that I currently eat.

PD is striping an amount of protein nightly as well as the massive protein I still lose through my residual kidney function.  That is a BIG protein leak!

I am also curious to know how different, if any, are the protein demand for those on hemo vs PD?

Oh, and I imagine my 225 pound body requires more protein than say a 100 pound female, so our sizes must be a consideration, I'm sure.

There are a number of reasons that I should seriously start replacing animal protein with plant based, most all boil down to health.  So I seriously have a lot to learn and really need to pay attention.   So everything you all tell me will be seriously taken to heart as I try to incorporate all into good use.

Meal plans suck, it's almost like trying to follow a recipe.  I don't follow recipes.  I read them to get an idea of what the author is using and how they are putting it together.  Then I check the refrigerator and cupboards to see what I have that can be used, and wing it from there.   I haven't had to make any trips to the hospital so I think I must be doing all right as I've managed to feed both the Wife and I, and we are BOTH still here!  So I think I must be doing something right, but I don't doubt that I could do better, eating healthier, with less meat.

CharlieB53 I love the phosphorous guide you linked.  I have printed it and added it to my ongoing eating healthy while on dialysis information I am slowly gathering for myself.
It is going to help me in streamlining my food inventory I have made on Xcel on my computer.  I may add a phosphorus column to the foods.
