Q:

HELLO,MY QUESTION IS, I HAVE TYPE TWO DIABETES I NEED TO KNOW IF THERE ARE ANY DIETS THAT ARE NO OR LOW SODIUM AND NO PROTEIN, IF SO CAN YOU SEND SOME PLEASE.

A:

Unfortunately, I really can’t send you a low sodium, low-protein diet. This kind of an eating plan needs to be carefully created by a dietitian to ensure that it provides the right amount of nutrients and calories to help with your blood glucose control, as well as your blood pressure and kidney function. I encourage you to ask your physician for a referral to a dietitian in your community . He or she will do a careful assessment of your food preferences, medical history and weight goal and then create an individualized eating plan that is tailored to you.

I am in stage 3 Ckd. While I have cut a lot of salt from my diet, the nephrologist has encouraged me to eat protein. I drink at least 60 ozs per day and am trying for 80. I think most of my sodium comes from whatever pre-packaged foods or additives I might use. I don't use much at home and many prepared foods taste way to salty to me now.

In the past I always used high protein items in my diet to help me from eating high carb items. My kidney function has dropped to only 42% of normal kidney functions. The kidney doctor recommended low sodium and low protein diet now. I am kind of lost right now and struggling to keep my A1C in check. The dietician told me not to eat more meat than can fit in the palm of my hand. I feel like I am starving all the time now. Is there a list of low protein items that is filling ???
