Patients who have chronic renal failure may be familiar with the chronic renal failure diet. This diet has become so popular nowadays due to the increasing cases of people with chronic renal failure. This diet for kidney failure when followed can help reduce the progression of your kidney disease.

Chronic renal failure is a result of progressive, irreversible loss of kidney function. It is generally a disease that slowly develops over months and years depending on the insult done to the kidneys and the extent of damage.

CRF has many causes including glumerolunephritis, nephrosclerosis, obstructive kidney diseases such as kidney stones and birth defects, diabetes mellitus and systemic lupus erythematosus, and most recently discovered illicit drugs and excessive analgesic use.

Regardless of the cause, the result will be the same: retention of nitrogenous wastes, fluid imbalances, electrolyte deficiencies and more. All of which affect multiple body systems.
It is vital to prevent progression of any kidney disease to chronic renal failure as this would eventually lead to end-stage renal disease (ESRD). This is the stage where most Americans with kidney disease fear most.

The chronic renal failure diet depends on the patients, treatment method, medical condition and nutritional status of the patient. The following should guide you about your specific regimen.

Dietary intervention is necessary with deterioration of renal function and includes careful regulation of your protein intake, fluid intake to balance fluid losses, sodium intake to balance sodium losses and some restriction of potassium. At the same time, adequate caloric intake and vitamin supplementation must be ensured.

The allowed protein intake that you consume must be of high biologic value (dairy products, eggs, meats). High biologic value proteins means those that are complete proteins and supply the essential amino acids necessary for growth and cell repair. There are many kidney disease diet out there that can also help you identify foods which are of high biologic value.

Usually, the fluid allowance is 500 to 600 mL more than the previous days 24- hour urine output. Calories are supplied by carbohydrates and fat to prevent wasting. Vitamin supplementation is necessary because a protein-restricted diet does not provide the necessary complement of vitamins. Additionally, the patient on dialysis may lose water-soluble vitamins from the blood during the dialysis treatment.

Chronic renal failure diet if properly followed properly can definitely help you with your kidney disease. This, coupled with medicines can help slow the progress of your condition.

    what is lupus?
    Defining Lupus

    A chronic, inflammatory, connective tissue disease that can affect the joints and many organs, including the skin, heart, lungs, kidneys, and nervous system. It can cause many different symptoms; however, not everyone with lupus has all of the symptoms. Also called systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE

      I think you answered your own question. I have Lupus and have had it for a long time. The only thing you didnt put is that it is an autoimmune disease where our own cells attack each other because they become hyperactive, and do not know they are attacking their own healthy cells. So Dr’s use immunosuppresents, chemotherapy, and prednisone, to suppress the immune system, in hopes of quieting a flare or pushing it down into remmison,

    I need help editing my research paper. I’m really bad at papers…..please help!?
    Well, its on lupus. I have the intro and two body paragraphs, and I still need to do the conclusion. So, I was wondering what I should change on my paper, and what I need to add..? I also have to do a powerpoint based on the paper, that should last a minimum of 5 minutes up to 15.

    The reason why I chose this topic was because my dad has lupus, and I wanted to know more about the topic. He was diagnosed with lupus when he was about fourteen years old. He still receives treatment for it by going in for blood tests and taking medication He has the most common form of lupus, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), in which causes the antibodies to react against his own normal tissue. He has arthritis and joint problems, but nothings wrong with his internal organs. To support my dad and other lupus survivors, my family and I all go to the lupus walk in honor of remembering the people who had lupus that died. The things the audience can expect to read in this paper are the different types of lupus, the symptoms, the treatment and cures.
    Lupus is the result of an unbalanced immune system that can be destructive to any organ in the body. It can be categorized into three groups: discoid lupus Erythematosus, systemic lupus Erythematosus, and drug-induced systemic lupus Erythematosus. DLE is always limited to the skin and is identified by a rash that may appear on the face, neck, and scalp. It can evolve into the systemic form, which can affect any organ or system of the body. Systemic lupus Erythematosus is more severe than discoid lupus and can affect almost any organ or organ system of the body. No two people with SLE will have identical symptoms. Drug-induced systemic Lupus Erythematosus occurs after the use of certain prescribed drugs. It is more common in men, because the drugs are given to them more often.
    Lupus is hard to diagnose because it has a wide range of symptoms involving various parts of the body; and symptoms differ from each person. Most people develop painful joints and a rash, but lupus may also cause fatigue, depressions, and kidney problems. The treatment of lupus varies from person to person because each person has different symptoms. Most people with SLE require a regular blood test to check for lupus flares. Medication is the primary medical treatment for lupus. Presently, there are no other methods available to treat lupus because there is nothing else that can have the necessary impact on the immune system. Currently, there is no cure for lupus, but with early diagnosis and proper medical treatment it can significantly help control the disease.

    thanks. it would be much appreciated!!!!

    Does highly elevated antinuclear antibody result to Systemic lupus erythematosus?
    I am now 50 years old woman. I had migrant since 18 years old, I‘ve been eating carfergot for 15 years. But now I am eating intera propranalol (20mg everyday) and the migrant is now well controlled.

    But recently I was detected to have elevated Antinuclear antibody, which is still positive after 1280 titre (normal range is below 80). And the pattern is speckled. With also elevated double stranded DNA antibodies (1.18 titre). My doctor said I have Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). But I don’t have any symptoms at all. Now the doctorask me to eat an antimalarial drug called “plaquenil”, 200mg a day. I also have a positive RNP. I have elevated ESR for years. Slightly lower Red cell count, slightly elevated lymphocytes. And normal complement 3 and 4.

    Do I really have SLE? I don’t feel unwell. Should I really eat plaquenil? I haerd it have side effect on eyes but it made me a little bit head ache.

    2 years ago I’ve had an MRI and showed that there was a very small lesion (white point). The comment was “Right occipital subcortical white matter subacute demyelination/ ischaemic change, which could be related to vasospam/vasculitis. Clinical correlation is essential.” I wonder doesit have to do with SLE?

    1. Michael Jacksons Glove

      those blood tests make it seem like you have SLE. elevated double stranded DNA antibodies mean you can have active lupus, which is slowly damaging your kidneys even though you don’t feel it.

      plaquenil is an anti-malaria medicine, but it also has other effects. in the case of lupus, it acts as an anti inflammatory. patients with lupus who take antimalarial pills live longer. if your doctor recommends it, you should probably take it.

      the white point that the MRI shows is a small area of brain damage–too small to have any effect on your health, apparently–and it could be due to the lupus inflaming the blood vessel in your brain. vasculitis means inflammation of a blood vessel, and it can be caused by lupus.

      Systemic lupus erythematosus , often abbreviated to SLE or lupus, is a chronic systemic autoimmune disease (or autoimmune connective tissue disease) that can affect any part of the body. As occurs in other autoimmune diseases, the immune system attacks the body’s cells and tissue, resulting in inflammation and tissue damage.

      SLE most often harms the heart, joints, skin, lungs, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, and nervous system. The course of the disease is unpredictable, with periods of illness (called flares) alternating with remissions. The disease occurs nine times more often in women than in men, especially women in child-bearing years ages 15 to 35, and is more common in those of non-European descent.

      Treatment

      SLE is treatable through addressing its symptoms, mainly with cyclophosphamide, corticosteroids and immunosuppressants; there is currently no cure. SLE can be fatal, although with recent medical advances, fatalities are becoming increasingly rare. Survival for people with SLE in the United States, Canada, and Europe is approximately 95% at five years, 90% at 10 years, and 78% at 20 years.

      Symptoms

      SLE is one of several diseases known as “the great imitators” because it often mimics or is mistaken for other illnesses.[7] SLE is a classical item in differential diagnosis,[3] because SLE symptoms vary widely and come and go unpredictably. Diagnosis can thus be elusive, with some people suffering unexplained symptoms of untreated SLE for years.

      Common initial and chronic complaints include fever, malaise, joint pains, myalgias, fatigue, and temporary loss of cognitive abilities. Because they are so often seen with other diseases, these signs and symptoms are not part of the diagnostic criteria for SLE.

      Causes

      There is no one specific cause of SLE. There are, however, a number of environmental triggers and a number of genetic susceptibilities
