Subject: Re: [ferrethealth] A protein debate, not a food type debate


1. Phosphorous reduction for chronic kidney disease which can be done
by carefully modifying diet (for example removing organ meats and
substituting in high quality protein sources that are comparably low
in phosphorous like egg) but is more easily done by reducing protein.

2. Cystine uroliths which absolutely require the reduction of 4 amino
acids: cystine, ornithine, lysine, and arginine so the easiest route
is to decrease protein in general. Both Hilbert and Morney would have
been dead in their first years without protein reductions to no more
than 35%. Instead, Hilbert will turn 7 in December and Morney will
turn 6 in November. (Morney has begun insulinoma. Hilbert has not.
We had one day when his readings were suddenly low but that turned out
to be an equipment failure because blood run elsewhere the same day
was fine.)

People need to know that there are such situations, too.
