New feature to go with my original blog...

(10/13/10) My original blog was running out of room for reporting research in a easily accessable manner. I am going to try this, a second site that you may click back and forth from. This second site is for the research information. The following is my original blog.
Please keep in mind that I am not promoting anyone or any product. There just isn't enough space to note all of the sites I have been on. As I said before, listing at least one will give a beginning place to look if you are interested.

Nutrition for diabetics with a kidney problem...

Excerpts from Nutrition for diabetics with a kidney problem...(by Kelli Cooper ehow Contributor) 

 "Poorly controlled blood sugar can lead to kidney damage. High blood sugar interferes with the kidney's filtering abilities, leading to a number of complications. Diabetics with kidney damage must adopt a diet that controls blood sugar and minimizes stress on the kidneys.
Breaking down proteins can tax the kidneys. Cutting down protein intake can reduce the burden on already damaged kidneys, according to the American Diabetes Association.

Diabetics also need to watch their sodium intake. High blood pressure will worsen kidney damage. The recommended intake is 2,400 mg or less daily but those with existing problems might need to restrict it even further.

Limit or eliminate alcohol---it raises blood sugar. Avoiding dehydration will benefit those with less severe kidney damage. Dr. Andrew Weil, an integrative medicine expert, recommends six to eight glasses in the form of water or caffeine-free teas
Eating meals near the same time every day that contain similar portions and amounts of carbohydrates, proteins and fats can also contribute to steady blood sugar, according to the Mayo Clinic. "
