Diabetics and Kidney Disease

Posted by @retiredteacher, Sat, Nov 17 4:10pm

The following information is for those of us with Diabetes and Kidney Disease. It looks as if it will provide more about the food we need to eat that will be good for our Diabetes and our Kidneys. Any time we can get more knowledge about this area, it is beneficial to have as many sources as possible.This looks as if it will be worth the time. I know I certainly can use more information in this area.

Webinar: Eating healthy with diabetes and kidney disease
Wednesday, November 28, 2018 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. EST
Speaker: Lori Martinez-Hassett, RD, CSR,
Topics: Diabetes • Diet • ESRD • Nutrition

http://www.kidneyfund.org/training/webinars/eating-healthy-with-diabetes-and-kidney-disease.html

Let's try it and see what Lori can tell us. I hope some of you will take advantage of this hour.

By the way. You DO need to register. The Webinar will be on your computer to see and listen to.

Thanks Carol. I hopeI can remember about this-I will be in the Eastern time zone fielding the preparations for a very hungry team. Will it be somewhere on file Incase the circus gets overwhelming? Susu2

Hi @susu2. did you go on the site and register? You don't have to fill out everything—just the required fields. The rest is optional.They will send you a reminder. You'll get the info over your computer and be able to see and hear—just like being there. I'm looking forward to getting good information; I need to have some more food choices or know if some that are okay for my diabetes are not good for my kidneys. I have had kidney problems in the past and do all I can to avoid having that problem. One of the other mentors said she was going to see if there could be a recording of the session so that it could be shared later, but she hasn't heard back yet.
I am so glad to get this information and be walking with you and Willie. Life is good.

@retiredteacher I don't have kidney disease but I am mildly diabetic. I would think this might be beneficial for me also, even though I do not have kidney disease. They do keep an eye on my kidneys monthly because the immunosuppressants can wreak havoc on them. I have to drink 80 – 100 ounces of water a day to keep them flushed.
Getting off track though, I think I would like to go this but the registration asks about your kidney disease so maybe it would not be appropriate for me.
Thanks for posting this tough.

@contentandwell I don't have kidney disease either, but I have had kidney problems—teachers' disease from not going to the restroom and not having fluids often enough during all the years I taught. I could never leave a class, so I had to hold it until a class change. That caused UTI's regularly, and I took different meds to clear the infection. I also developed kidney stones and had several attacks. So I think at any regard we must take care of our kidneys. When they are in distress, the whole rest of the body is too. I think most people could use any information about what to eat to take care of the kidneys.
Don't worry about the registration. I put only the required: Name and email.

@kamama94 – I want to invite you to this discussion group. We hope to have others join us as we learn together about eating healthy.

I am registered! I'll look forward to seeing all of you next week.

@rosemarya Thanks. LOL, you just invited someone who ate doughnuts over the week-end. Sign me, Embarrassed Kamama.

@retiredteacher Retired nurses have the same problem.

@kamama94 I am glad you reminded me about nurses having the problem, and there are others who get locked into a situation that have it too. Thanks for reminding me. I think just about any woman deals with this, especially if she's in a job that calls for her to be responsible for a group all the time. It's a difficult situation, and eventually, it causes problems. I wish we could get more people to register for this presentation. I am sure it will be beneficial.
Donuts? Yum! But a No, no for me.

I used to love doughnuts so much that when I dieted I dreamed of doughnuts! DD's doughnuts aren't as good as they used to be though so much less of a temptation. I only like their jelly sticks. I was told when I being discharged from the hospital one time, and craving a jelly stick, that once in a great while it won't hurt so we stopped at the drive up and got one on the way home.
JK

I can't eat just one. 🙁

@kamama94 I understand, if there is something in the house that I like I have a hard time stopping at just one, but with doughnuts, if I very occasionally buy one at the drive up there is no further temptation.

I am wondering if anyone tuned in to the webinar yesterday. What are your thoughts?

I tuned in because I wanted to learn more about this topic. I do not have diabetes, although it is something that is on my radar due to my anti rejection meds and transplant. I have a transplanted liver and kidney. I know about liver things, however, since my kidney failure (hepatorenal) was sudden I feel that I am unfamiliar with kidney things.

I tried to take some notes, but they are a scrambled mess! I did learn some interesting explanations about the lab readings and what they measured in terms of kidney function.

The one message that was repeated over and over was: "Talk to your Doctor" because we all have individual needs.

@rosemarya Color me embarrassed. I totally forgot the time and missed the webinar. I'm pretty sure some things have changed since I cared for diabetic and/or kidney patients a couple of decades ago. Hope they repeat it or better yet, maybe you can sift through your notes, I'd be very interested to find out what you learned.

kamama, I am sorry you missed it. There was a lot of general/basic information. Too much for me to absorb or write.
I heard the presenter say that different foods are absorbed by body in varying percentages. For example: (I think ) – 90% of inorganic phosphorus is absorbed. The body absorbs 50% from meat/eggs/dairy, and 40% from beans and legumes. So if we are watching our phosphorus intake, this is good to know.
