lupus and diet drinks

    What are bad habits that could lead to kidney failure?
    like I want to know what actually CAUSES kidney failure, how does it happen?
    for ex: not drinking water leads to kidney failure

    I know that, but how much do you need to not drink to get kidney failure? i want to know specifically

    1. Cori

      The top half of this I cut and pasted, the bottom half answers the rest, hopefully. Drink lots of water- you kidneys are really important and it’s a very painful way to die if you under hydrate yourself.

      * Hypovolemia (low blood volume) due to blood loss

      * Dehydration from loss of body fluid (vomiting, diarrhea, sweating, fever )

      * Poor intake of fluids

      * Medication, for example, diuretics (“water pills”) may cause excessive water loss.

      * Loss of blood supply to the kidney due to obstruction of the renal artery or vein.

      Renal causes (damage directly to the kidney itself) include:

      * Sepsis: The body’s immune system is overwhelmed from infection and causes inflammation and shutdown of the kidneys. This usually does not occur with urinary tract infections.

      * Medications: Some medications are toxic to the kidney, including nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen and naproxen. Others are antibiotics like aminoglycosides [gentamicin (Garamycin), tobramycin], lithium (Eskalith, Lithobid), iodine-containing medications such as those injected for radiology dye studies.

      * Rhabdomyolysis: This is a situation in which there is significant muscle breakdown in the body, and the degeneration products of muscle fibers clog the filtering system of the kidneys. Often occurring because of trauma and crush injuries, it can also be caused by some medications used to treat high cholesterol.

      * Multiple Myeloma

      * Acute glomerulonephritis or inflammation of the glomeruli, the filtering system of the kidneys. Many diseases can cause this inflammation including systemic lupus erythematosus, Wegener’s granulomatosis, and Goodpasture syndrome.

      Post renal causes (post=after + renal= kidney) are due to factors that affect outflow of the urine:

      * Obstruction of the bladder or the ureters can cause back pressure when there is no place for the urine to go as the kidneys continue to work. When the pressure increases enough, the kidneys shut down.

      * Prostatic hypertrophy or prostate cancer may block the urethra and prevents the bladder from emptying.

      * Tumors in the abdomen that surround and obstruct the ureters.

      * Kidney stones

      Chronic renal failure develops over months and years. The most common causes of chronic renal failure are related to:

      * Poorly controlled diabetes

      * Poorly controlled high blood pressure

      * Chronic glomerulonephritis

      Less common causes:

      * Polycystic Kidney Disease

      * Reflux nephropathy

      * Kidney stones

      * Prostate disease
      So these are the causes (above) some are genetic or environmental, some bad habits are alcohol or drug use (the body must filter the toxins via the kidney). Letting a UTI go untreated could allow the bacteria into your kidneys, if you have diabetes or high blood pressure and you don’t control these issues with drugs or diet, you could get kidney failure, prostate issues that go untreated could cause issues, etc. Anorexia could starve the kidneys of blood or nutrients or cause a slow-down of filtration. What really happens is usually one of three things- too much uric acid throws off the PH balance of your kidneys, putting them in a state of acidosis that can lead to breakdown of the lining. Bacteria can infect the kidneys and flood them with white blood cells, thus overloading and shutting down the kidneys from functioning while they try and repair themselves to achieve homeostasis, or they could be starved of oxygen due to lack of red blood cell function from things like lack of oxygen rich fluids (water). Usually it takes the body a little over 2 days of pure dehydration to result in complete renal failure.

    What can cause leg and arm pain that radiates to the fingers and toes?
    I have been getting pains in my legs and arms and it moves to my fingers and toes. I am not sure of what this is but, it stopped when I was on prenatal vitamins. After having my son it came back a few months after. I was told to drink more water in which I do but, that doesn’t seem to be helping what kind of vitamins can I be missing in my diet or what else could this be? I am tired and it’s keeping me awake at night please help?.

      See your health care provider as soon as possible (neurologist). Nerves can be compressed near their roots as they emerge from the spinal cord. Pressure can come from arthritis bone spurs, protruding disks, disk fragments, or overgrowth of bone surrounding the hole through which the nerve exits (spinal stenosis).
      Some diseases and conditions, such as the professor’s vitamin B12 deficiency, affect peripheral nerves directly. Others in this category include diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, thiamine deficiency, and kidney failure. Sometimes neuropathies can result from too much vitamin B6, certain types of cancer chemotherapy, or chronic alcoholism.

      Vitamin B12 supplementation should quickly resolved the numbness and pain, also drinking lots of fluids (water), and potassium supplements will help. See your doctor. I hope this helps you. And good luck.

    What are the best prescription meds for Cystic Acne?
    I was diagnosed with Lupus in March and have been very sick. I have had symptoms though for 7 years. Recently I have started having whiteheads all over my face that re-occur all day and over a dozen spots of cystic acne on my jawline, neck and chin. The cystic acne takes at least 2 weeks for each lesion to go away, but by that time there are several new ones. It is painful and ruining my skin. I saw another post on here that said they did not think Lupus had any relation to the cystic acne problem, but I am sure it does. I have never had acne like this in all my life, and whiteheads are an over abundance of white cells which makes sense because of the immune system issues with Lupus. I have tried all home remedies and over the counter meds and nothing is even touching this. Is there a very good prescription medicine for cystic acne that works with Lupus and does not have a bunch of ugly side effects,& that is not steroid based as I cannot take those? Thanks for any input you may have

      Wow I’m sorry to hear this, I guess if it is lupus related go to your doctor or a dermatologist, they can help you more than anything, keep your face clean by washing it twice a day. I’d recommend going to lush, its a store with only natural products so it helps a lot. Drink water, and keep a healthy diet. If this persists, laser isn’t a bad way to go. Good luck.

    Can’t afford to get mercury fillings removed- are there supplements in the meantime to guard against toxicity?
    In addition, I have lupus and kidney disease. Thanks.

    1. Alex F

      This might seem like a strange answer, but if it at all possible drink water that’s not fluorinated.
      The biggest problem with mercury fillings in that they react with fluoride to form a metal complex which is extremely toxic (and leeched out of the fillings).
      Additionally, Fluoride often taxes the kidneys, to the point that dialysis machines (used when complete kidney failure happens) use reverse osmosis filtered water specifically to take fluoride out of water (and the kidney association has come out saying fluroide trashes the kidneys).
      I know fluoride sometimes causes lupus, but that part isn’t as strongly shown/proven. The main thing which causes lupus is aspartame, you might want to look into your diet and see if that’s anywhere.
      Also by any chance have you been suffering from thyroid problems?

      Anyhow, other than fluoride removal, most of the treatments I know of for mercury detox are somewhat of a pain.
      They include;
      Don’t eat food with mercury (ie. fish up in the food chain)
      Use chelating agents (ie. edta, chlorella), which is a pain because other than chlorella, every single one basically needs a doctor to help you (which starts to add up cost wise).

      Hope that helps. Ideally you want the fillings out, but I understand the limitations you have, so hopefully that works.
      If you’d like any more info on fluoride (ie. a copy of an excellent book written on it) I’d be happy to send you it if you give me your email!

    Glucose reading of 126 after drinking a bunch of soda?
    I recently took a glucose reading and it said 126, and that was after drinking a lot of soda. I drank a 32oz and 2 20oz sodas. I also had eaten about an hour and a half before taking the test. Is this reading low, and should I be concerned?

    1. syl c.

      Blood sugar levels vary throughout the day and depending on what, how much and when you last ate. Exercise can also affect blood glucose levels. The main tests are the fasting blood glucose test and the postprandial, or after meal, test. Levels between 70 and 110 mg/dL, or milligrams per deciliter, are normal for the fasting blood glucose test, and postprandial blood glucose levels should be less than 140 mg/dL for those without diabetes. Diabetics sometimes have higher blood sugar goals, including blood sugar levels less than 130 mg/dL with a fasting test and less than 180 mg/dL when measured after a meal.

      You should be concerned about the amount of soda you are drinking and how it is affecting your blood glucose levels. You are not at prediabetic or diabetic levels but continuing to drink alot of soda or diet soda may cause you to develop insulin resistance. Aspartame has had the most complaints of any food additive available to the public. It’s been linked with MS, lupus, fibromyalgia and other central nervous disorders. Possible side effects of aspartame include headaches, migraines, panic attacks, dizziness, irritability, nausea, intestinal discomfort, skin rash, and nervousness. Sucarlose is also another ingredient that can cause sugar sensitivity in some persons. These are ingredients in sodas and are not really good for you and in some persons do tend to raise their blood glucose levels, among other things.

      Try to drink more water with a twist of lemon or other drinks that do not contain these two additives. Read the labels in order to see what type of ingredients are in sodas and the amount of sugar levels. You may want to minimize your sugar intake in order to avoid sugar sensitivity and higher glucose levels.

      Hope this helps.

    Have you been diagnosed with drug induced Lupus ?
    !0 years ago began having problem with elevated blood pressure. Was treated with the usually prescribed meds. Within the past ten years I have had a variety of unusual and often preplexing symptoms that the doctors couldn’t find good answers for. Lots of guesses and lots of unsuccessful treatments and increased frustration and misery until recently. The diagnosis is drug induced Lupus and it is believed to be caused by my blood pressure meds. Bingo. The symptoms have developed over the same period I’ve been on the meds. My question is: Any known effective alternatives for Blood Pressure Control? Anyone else with Lupus have bizarre skin and hair folllicle issues? Any one know a reputable doctor in Kansas City Missouri to advise on alternative treatments? Any one know of a web site to purchase alternative B/P treatments that you or someone you know have had personal experience with? Are there suggestions for a great support website for Lupus?

    1. Healing Oneself

      Hi WIngsOfGrace

      Here are some ideas to heal the issue. Also learning about detoxifying the blood by doing colon and liver cleanses will change your health forever.

      Food allergies (there is a 100 percent correlation between lupus and food allergies), rheumatoid arthritis, other connective tissue diseases, parasites, candidiasis, bowel problems, and digestive enzyme deficiencies can create symptoms that mimic or exacerbate SLE. Migraines, epilepsy, and psychoses must also be ruled out before a proper course of treatment can be decided upon.

      Both forms of lupus primarily strike young women (90% of cases) and young children.

      The drugs hydralazine, procainamide, and beta blockers can cause false-positive readings of SLE, and can also produce a lupus-like condition that disappears when the drugs are no longer taken. Birth control pills and environmental stresses can also exacerbate lupus symptoms.


      Natural Cures

      Diet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet. Also avoid overeating and limit your intake of dairy, beef products, and polyunsaturated oils. Also screen for food allergies and avoid all foods to which you are allergic or sensitive. Increase your intake of vegetables, especially green, yellow, and orange, and consume non-farm-raised fish several times a week.

      Herbs: Supplementation with Swedish bitters with each meal can increase hydrochloric acid production. Also drink an infusion of nettle twice a day. Other useful herbs include echinacea, goldenseal, licorice, pau d`arco, and red clover

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment.

      Hyperthermia: Hyperthermia involves artificially creating fever in the body for the purpose of boosting immune function. Hyperthermia can be a highly effective method of eliminating toxins and heavy metals, as well as infectious bacteria and viruses that cannot survive in elevated body temperatures.

      *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy or hyperthermia treatment. Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

      Juice Therapy: Drink the juice of carrot, celery, flaxseed oil, black currant oil, and garlic.

      Nutritional Supplementation: Hydrochloric acid (HCL) deficiency is common in people with lupus, therefore HCL supplements with each meal is advised. Other useful nutrients include vitamin A with beta carotene, vitamin C and bioflavonoids, vitamin B complex, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, essential fatty acids, proteolytic enzymes taken away from meals, digestive enzymes taken with meals, and the amino acids L-cysteine, L-methionine, and L-cystine.

      Topical Treatment: PABA cream applied topically can help ease symptoms.

      Best of health to you

      In diet sodas, the real problem lies in the artificial sweetener, which contains NutraSweet, also known as Aspartame. This artificial sweetener has been found to cause seizures in otherwise healthy children who do not have epilepsy. Residuals from this artificial sweetener can also build up in the brain and may be related to brain tumors and other neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and systemic lupus.

    Very good question. I only drink 7 up when have sore tummy. I only get distilled added with mineral water to drink as the water in phoenix and surrounding areas uses much reclaimed water and you don’t want to know. Look where the soda is bottled. If from Northern states, would say ok, if from Ca avoid. If from china not safe for your drains, just guessing, sounded good. Consider plain distilled with mineral added water and put fresh lemon in and it is good and cheaper. Soda water has sodium and I am on low sodium diet due to health. I never ate much salt to shudder to think how much worse my health would be if I didn’t eat healthy. I am 58 on borrowed time with severe systemic lupus and I know I would be dead now if wasn’t so healthy all of my life in my food and drink.
    Good health to you. 🙂

    What could be causing this pain in my abdomen?
    For the past few weeks I have been having pain in my stomach, it gets worse when I have a empty stomach and seems to go away right after I eat. I have also been having a sharp stabbing pain below my right ribs. It is made worse by movement. its not my appendix cuz that was removed, i am 23, not very active (lupus) I drink a lot of water. I am on steroids and pain medication.
    oh it can not be from a kidney because i do not have a right kidney, and the pain gets so bad under my ribs that it has stopped me in my tracks and i could not stand up straight.

    1. Dr.Snowboard

      It sounds like it could be an ulcer 🙁
      Your stomach is located on the left side of your abdominal cavity but internal pain can radiate to odd locations.
      This can be caused by many things. Some steroids are known to cause Peptic ulcers and so can pain medications. Heavy drinking and irregular diet can also be the cause.
      Also, pain tends to subside after eating but can return if the ulcer is severe. Ulcers can also occur in your small intestine typically near the stomach.

      I recommend going to a doctor if pain persists or becomes worse.
