Kidney Disease Protein: Common calculation to determine how much your body needs


Episode 7: Kidney Disease Protein: Common calculation to determine how much your body needs. Kidney disease protein limits are critical to improving your overall kidney function. How much protein should you eat daily in your kidney diet to maintain your health? Dadvice TV walks you through how most doctors would calculate YOUR specific daily protein intake amount so that you can calculate it yourself. Knowing the correct daily protein intake and how to calculate protein intake will help you balance your protein intake and reduce stress on your kidneys. It is important to have the right amount of protein in your kidney diet and you should always verify your calculation with your doctor if they did not provide you one. Depending on your medical condition, your doctor may use a different formula - this is just the most common protein calculation and used for people with higher functioning kidneys. As your disease progresses, your doctor WILL lover your kidney disease protein limit. Too much protein, especially animal based protein, will increase your BUN and creatinine levels, lowering you calculated GFR.
