I joined the list about a month ago and as I mentioned before I have multiple illnesses. In 1995 I had a heart transplant, however with all the blessings of nearly seventeen years of of life have come some real challenges. I have High Potassium Disease, am Diabetic, on Warfarin for clotting, and in Stage 3 near Stage 4 kidney disease and a stomach ulcer. Of course I have all the aches and pains that come with all these physical problems plus take several potent meds to keep from rejecting my heart.
Now to my problem. I am well controlled on my diabetes with a GFR of 6.5. BUT! I am loosing weight on my low carb diet. I was a tad bit heavier than I should have been when I went off the insulin and went on Glipizide. I weighed around 126 in October and am now at 113. I haven't talked to my clinic since I hit the 114 mark. But I am sure they are not going to be happy and neither am I. I just looked at the Ensure products and am wondering if any of you have this problem and use Ensure or something similar?
I am eating as well and as much as I can but because of the high Potassium and Warfarin problem it is very hard to balance my diet. Any advise is welcome.
