My mom was on home care and I called in a dietician. First of all I did not know the 1800 calorie diet is pure bullshit! Next I did not know that Dieticians don't use the Glycemic index anymore. Finally I did not know plant protein was so harmful for you, especially in regards to overloading your kidneys. Also a CKD pre-dialysis diet is pretty piss poor. Have to watch the excess phosphorous and potassium which is in everything almost. Also I learned Metformin is not good for the kidneys. I am so afraid of kidney failure now. I think James has the right idea about trying to get off meds long term in order to control our HBA1c. Carbs and sugars are good, but dialysis sucks!
