Blood and Urine Tests, Good Nutrition PureFlex Review and Protein Supplements: A Case Study Dave has kidney disease. At this point, he does not need to have dialysis; however, he does come to the lab very frequently to have blood work and to give a urine sample. He has had to do the 24 hour urine collection a time or two and is glad that the doctor has switched to using the protein to creatinine ratio instead. His overall diet was fairly healthy, but the nutritionist suggested that he change his fat intake to healthier Omega-3 fatty acids over the other, less healthy fats that he was eating and to increase the amount of protein and calcium in his diet. He will include a protein supplement because he has a lower appetite lately.
After trying protein shakes, Dave started using a new supplement. Because it is so small it can be consumed in a few seconds. While it only has 100 calories per serving, it gives Dave a high amount of digestible protein. He aims for two servings each day and then tries to increase his dietary protein from healthy plant sources for the rest of the day. On days when he simply cannot eat healthfully, he ups his intake to maintain his levels.
There are several reasons that you should be making sure that you get the right amount of protein. First, protein is the way that you build lean muscle mass. Protein also is one of the most important components of all the living cells in the body. It is used by the body to create enzymes and hormones that are used for digestion and metabolism, ovulation and even sleep. It helps to fight infections and heal wounds and is a major source of energy in the body. It helps to balance the fluid level in the body as well.
There are two sources of protein including animal products and plant-based protein sources. Some of the most common sources of animal protein include milk, cheeses, eggs, chicken, fish, turkey and other meat products. All of these types of protein are complete, having all of the amino acids that the body needs. Proteins themselves are made of amino acids, 20 in all. Of these, nine are considered to be essential because the body is unable to create them on its own.May 25, 2019 at 3:27 pm #51634
