... so I saw the renal dietician...

Monday, November 04, 2019

... and she told me 45 minutes wasn't enough time to go over the two main things I needed help with. Figures. LOL However, we did cover a lot of basics, and I came away with some good suggestions, and new parameters for sodium and potassium intake. Anyone interested in details, just let me know!

I am finding it difficult to change routines that I have been using for the last 15 or 20 years, though... it is providing me with another challenge. I have GOT to stop saying that I like a bit of a challenge...even it it's true, there are some challenges I could do without right now... LOL

I find I am easily distracted these days, which I discovered could be from the brain fog that I didn't know sometimes accompanies kidney failure... interesting that it's all interconnected.

Now, where was I...?
...oh well... *giggle*

Still looking for a place to move to. Have not found anything yet. The real estate and rental market prices are SO high...

It is trash day here today. I suppose I should get another of my routines into gear and go play with my refrigerator science expeiments... emoticon

I am DETERMINED that today's going to be a GOOD DAY...
Love you, my friends!

    I have had some bad lab results over the past couple of years, so, yes, I would def love to know about the parameters she gave you. My doc retired so may not have followed through and it took a long time to find a new doc. He is still working his way through all my labs starting with the worst results and working on them in order.

    Hope you get everything sorted out. I know it's hard for me to adjust to changes. Wishing you all the best....

    I think that renal diets are one of the hardest diets to deal with as some healthy foods are restricted because they are high in potassium, etc.. As a former dialysis nurse I used to have to help renal patients with their diets and there is a lot involved. Good luck with the diet!

    Good luck w/all the changes. ON top of everything else, looking for a new place to live is not what you need!

    HUGS and good luck.

    Glad to read that advice is centered around an improved diet than Dialysis. Your mood seems to be still undaunted, which is great to read.
    I am on a artificial insulin and with a head cold, from either the change in weather or my grandson, my readings really bounce around. My diet is good for the most part.
    Challenges can be overcoming at times. Some how, new used to have romance to it. An opportunity for more success. Now it seems to have more doubt on whether this new idea will result in the gain if followed. Challenges just seem to be another fork in the road.
    Continued success for you. You can only do what you can do.
