The Kidney Friendly Diet Cookbook: Recipes For A PreDialysis Kidney Disease Lifestyle

Sunday, June 16th, 2013

Created by a veteran Registered Dietitian, “The Kidney Friendly Diet Cookbook: Recipes For A Predialysis Kidney Disease Lifestyle” has all the necessary tools in a cookbook that you need for recipes based on your predialysis kidney disease.
Predialysis kidney disease patients have different restrictions than those of dialysis patients. This cookbook focuses on those with predialysis kidney disease and provides nutritional information for every recipe.
If your medical professional has you restricting protein, sodium or maybe even potassium then this cookbook will allow you to properly select the recipes that apply more closely to your restrictions. The days of the generic “renal” cookbook are over.
As a predialysis patient you need more targeted recipes and nutritional information so more informed choices can be made and you can “create your own kidney diet meal plan” for predialysis based on the foods you like and the needs you have.
Food categories include: Breakfast, Beef, Pork, Poultry, Seafood & Fish, Vegetarian, Salads, Soups, Side Dishes and Desserts. Also included is an alphabetical index of all recipes.
It is time to add this cookbook to your tool kit! This cookbook certainly will give you the choices that you have been searching for.

Obese Children and the Complications They Face, Diabetes, Heart, Liver and Kidney Failure, Blindness, Amputation and Nerve Damage

Friday, February 15th, 2013

Childhood Obesity has become a global problem. Obese Kids aged 10 years are developing, among other diseases, Type 2 Diabetes, also known as Adult Onset Diabetes, in other words, an “Old Person’s Disease”.
They haven’t even found a name for it yet, and many of the medications being used are not suited for kid’s use.
This book has been written by a type 2 diabetic who, some 20 years after contracting the disease, has developed at least two of the main complications, severe nerve damage and a muscle wasting disease. But there are many complications with far worse effects than these.
The shock at finding that ten year olds were getting type 2 diabetes because
of obesity has compelled him to write this book in an attempt to wake people up to these complications.

The Vegetarian Diet for Kidney Disease: Preserving Kidney Function With Plant-based Eating

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Joan Brookhyser Hogan is a registered dietition who has packed this new book “The Vegetarian Diet for Kidney Disease,” with clearly stated, up-to-date information on the most effective methods for managing kidney disease. Her focus on vegetarian nutrition comes from a growing awareness of its value in wrestling kidney disease down to size, or, in the best-case scenario, stopping the progression of this destructive disease in it’s tracks. When the author first became a dietition several decades ago, it was a different story. Plant proteins were then considered inferior to animal proteins, a belief based on the erroneous conclusion that plants contained high levels of certain minerals thought to cause complications in chronic kidney disease. Thanks, however, to ongoing research in the intervening years, this false belief has since been reversed. Vegetarianism has not only become acceptable, it is now considered superior to animal-based diets for the prevention and treatment of chronic kidney disease. This valuable book has a great deal of specific informaion to assist you in implementing, or continuiing, a plant-based diet that can help, not harm, the health of your kidneys. Hogan first outlines the benefits of vegetarianism, and follows that wih chapters on the stages of Kidney disease, on common problems associated with the disease, and on the relationship of this disease to other disorders. An enlightening discussion of the link between kidneys and diet precedes a diet plan that also includes herbals, supplements, and other natural products, with a final chapter on detailed meal plans and recipes providing the core of the author’s program. Along with numerous, detailed tables and graphs and a smattering of case histories printed throughout, there are Appendices, Resources, and References situated in back that serve to round out the guidelines and highlight the benefits of this relevant book that anyone with chronic kidney disese will find useful, even indeispensable.

Chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease–using the ANNA standards and practice guidelines to improve care: Part 1: the epidemiology of … An article from: Nephrology Nursing Journal

Monday, October 29th, 2012

This digital document is an article from Nephrology Nursing Journal, published by Thomson Gale on November 1, 2006. The length of the article is 8105 words. The page length shown above is based on a typical 300-word page. The article is delivered in HTML format and is available in your Amazon.com Digital Locker immediately after purchase. You can view it with any web browser.

From the author: Recent National Kidney Foundation Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative Guidelines for cardiovascular disease recommend that patients with chronic kidney disease be considered at highest risk for development of cardiovascular disease and that cardiac risk factor reduction begin with diagnosis of chronic kidney disease. Risk factors for cardiovascular disease in patients with chronic kidney disease include both traditional and nontraditional renal-related cardiac risk factors. The ANNA Nephrology Nursing Standards of Practice and Guidelines for Care can provide the foundation for planning care to patients with CKD and not only slow the progression of CKD but reduce exposure to cardiac risk factors. This article, on the epidemiology of chronic kidney disease and the risk factors and complications that contribute to cardiovascular disease, is the first in a series of three articles on the risk factors and complications related to chronic kidney disease and its impact on cardiovascular disease.

Diabetic Kidney Disease – ECAB

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

The prevalence of Diabetes Mellitus is increasing rapidly all over the world and more so in the developing countries. The global burden of diabetes is expected to double between 2000 and 2030, with the greatest increases in prevalence occurring in the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa and India. Moreover, the development of type 2 diabetes during the childbearing years is also likely to increase, primarily in the developing countries. It has already been established that Diabetes is the most common primary cause leading to end stage renal disease (ESRD) and Diabetic Nephropathy is the leading cause of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in India.

The cornerstones of management of Diabetic Kidney Diseases include early diagnosis of diabetic nephropathy, prevention of its progression and treatment of the co-morbid conditions. Substantial under-diagnosis of both diabetes and chronic kidney disease leads to lost opportunities for prevention. An inadequate or inappropriate care of patients with diabetic kidney disease contributes to disease progression eventually up to a stage that requires renal replacement therapy, which is not a feasible option for many on a long-term basis, especially in a developing country like ours.

This book covers various aspects of diabetic kidney disease in detail and attempts to familiarize the reader with the existing aspects of the conditions as well as touch upon the new advances in the field. The first chapter outlines the extent to which the condition affects the population globally as well as in our country. The second chapter explores the underlying mechanism by which the disease starts and progresses and the pathological markers of the same. The third chapter delineates the clinical and diagnostic markers of the condition. The fourth and fifth chapters speak of the non-diabetic glomerular and non-glomerular diseases in diabetics. The sixth chapter addresses the most important and desirable goal of preventing the progression and ideally the onset of the disease. The seventh chapter puts together the various treatment modalities available and the subsequent chapter explores the management options for cases requiring renal replacement. In addition to the emphasis to Indian literature at the end of each chapter, the ninth chapter is specially included to highlight the salient aspects of this condition from the Indian perspective.

This book will be beneficial not only for the nephrologists, but also for the epidemiologists, medical students, diabetologists and every doctor who deals with diabetes mellitus.

 

Renal Physicians Association and National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive and Kidney Diseases (Blood Purification, Vol 14, No 4)

Sunday, October 21st, 2012

This text focuses on group differences in kidney dialysis. Patient characteristics, often demographic and unchangable, greatly effect the final outcome of the disease. For example, African Americans have a very high incidence of end-stage renal disease, but survive longest once on dialysis. This generalization also seems to hold true for Mexican Americans. The implications of these observations are great, as they place a burden on these ethnic societies and on the health delivery systems. Also these groups, along with native Americans, have lower transplantation rates. This observation has major economic and clinical implications. To compound this further, African Americans are at increased risk for graft loss due to multiple immunologic and non-immunologic factors.

Coping with Kidney Disease: A 12-Step Treatment Program to Help You Avoid Dialysis

Saturday, September 1st, 2012

A revolutionary program that can indefinitely postpone the need for dialysis

If you’ve been diagnosed with kidney failure, this book could save your life. If you suffer from diabetes, hypertension, obesity, or any of a host of conditions that put you at risk for kidney disease, you owe it to yourself to read what is in this book. If you are among the 60,000 North Americans who go on dialysis each year, the information in this book could substantially improve your quality of life.

In Coping with Kidney Disease, a leading expert tells you, in plain English, what you need to know to:
* Understand kidney failure
* Recognize early warning signs of kidney failure
* Get a proper diagnosis
* Talk with your doctors about it
* Confidently evaluate treatment options
* Take charge of your treatment
* Delay dialysis or even avoid the need for it altogether

The centerpiece of Coping with Kidney Disease is Dr. Walser’s revolutionary 12-step program for avoiding dialysis. Based on treatments he has pioneered with his own patients at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, the program calls for a supplemented low-protein diet supported by treatments to control blood pressure and correct high cholesterol. So effective has this breakthrough strategy proven to be that in many patients it actually worked to slow or arrest the progression of kidney failure to the end stage.

Knowledge is power. Coping with Kidney Disease empowers you with what you need to take charge of kidney disease.
