what is the difference between benign and renal glycosuria?
Renal...the kidney tubules have difficulty reabsorbing even normal levels of blood sugar so some is excreted in the urine. This is essentially 'benign' glycosuria. (+ info
Type 1 Diabetes or Renal glycosuria (For kanangisrinivas or others)?
This was a topic dicussed a little in a previous post. I took my 3 year old to the doctor with symptoms of excessive thirst, excessive urination, leg aches, and headaches. Her urine culture came back with sugar in her urine. Blood work was done but the sugar in her blood is normal. More blood tests are being run (we don't have all the results yet) but so far everything looks normal. After reading more about Type 1 Diabetes it seems she has even more symptoms than even the ones above such as excessive hunger, complains that her tummy hurts, goes crazy after eating candy, craves starch, and bedwetting. It sounds like Type 1 Diabetes Symptoms however her blood sugar levels are coming back normal. Is possible this could still be Renal glycosuria or is possible to be on the verge of Type 1 Diabetes? My doctor is consulting with a Endricronologist but I would like to learn as much as possible to be prepared.
Diabetes can be misdiagnosed. You have to make sure that your doctor is aware of every symptom. As you may know Type 1 diabetes is an onset disease which can spark at any time during one's young life time. Close monitoring is key. If bloodsugars are coming back normal then it could be the case where "borderline diabetes" is taking place, which is causing peak stages in sugar levels after eating sugars where the body is taking longer to control these levels. Once again monitor this situation very very closely. If you think you are monitoring it all you can, its still not enough. Ask your doctor or endocrinologist for a hemoglobin A1C test to see if your childs sugar levels are bouncing around. This test will give you about a 6 month average bloodsugar level reading and is used to judge a diabetic's all around management. (+ info

What is a good recipe for a birthday cake for a renal person?
My father was recently diagnose with having Renal issues (kindney failure) and his birthday is May 16th. What is a good recipe for a person who can't have sugar, salt, or butter and is also renal friendly.
well, i am currently on dialysis and also diabetic, so i follow this diet as well, which isn't easy! we are allowed butter--unsalted is better. if he is diabetic then yes he must also be careful with sugar. to be on the safe side, i'd go with an angel food cake, which you can get in a sugar free version, but they are usually very light and not too sugary made the regular way. here's a nice cake a friend just recently made me, very easy recipe:
store bought angel food cake
1 package of sugar free vanilla pudding
1 20 oz. can of crushed pineapple, with the juice
1/2 tub of cool whip
strawberries (or whatever fresh berries you prefer) for garnishing
cut the cake across twice, giving you 3 layers. mix together pudding mix, pineapple with the juice. after mixed well, fold in cool whip. spread mixture in between layers of cake. garnish with fresh berries.

What indicates whether renal impairment has developed recently?
I've been told to consider normochromic, normocytic anaemia. But I don't know why nomochromic normocytic anameia would indicate recent renal impairment? How does this differ from chronic ones?
instead of struggling on the nomenclature of disease conditions, diagnosis, etc., better try safe method of tackling anaemia.

How long after stopping oatmeal can I expect renal numbers to improve?
I had asked an earlier question about increase in serum creatinine and BUN due to consumption of oatmeal in the renal impaired patients like me.
Could someone (may be Lisa & Steve who answered the last question) can tell as to how much time after i stop oatmeal should I expect my renal numbers (BUN and serum creatinine) to improve?
If the oatmeal is to blame, then up to two weeks should pass before your numbers will improve. (+ info

How can I lose weight while on a renal diet?
I have a kidney disease and was recently put on a renal diet. It consists of very little meat and lots of starchy foods. I have gained a lot of weight because of this. There's quiet a few fruits that I cannot have because their high in potassium. I've tried eating a lot of salad, but I can only take so much. If there is anyone who is going through the same thing, please help.
There are lots of other kidney patients and caregivers who can answer similar questions on the dialysis message forum at www.ihatedialysis.com. There is also a food and recipe section that you may find helpful. I wish you the best of luck. (+ info
