Overview

A unique dietary creatine-control self-help book designed to aid dialyzing kidney patients in taking charge of and improving their health.

More than 250,000 persons in the USA alone (and millions worldwide) have some form of end stage renal disease (ESRD). For the hundreds of thousands who must undergo dialysis to stay alive, excessive serum creatinine-the metabolic "waste" product of creatine, a natural component of meat, contributes to the vicious cycle of nausea, vomiting, anorexia and diminished quality of life experienced by both kidney patients, and those approaching renal failure. Through extensive research, Wendy Lou Jones (Royal Knight, Inc.) has created a unique self-help guide to assist both the kidney patient and those approaching end stage renal failure, in break this negative cycle. The consumer-friendly techniques for creatine removal, presented in 14-point font, are well detailed and easy-to-follow. Special attention was given to taste and quality of the final product By applying the techniques outlined in this text, patients with renal insufficiency/impairment should, by working closely with members of their healthcare team, be able to regain the dietary flexibility they had lost.

Here's a book that really shows you how to get more from the meat you eat!

As a renal patient, you are constantly told that you need meat protein, and in the next breath you are asked to limit your meat consumption because of too much phosphorus, and because of extra creatinine that will be generated from it. Yippy -- a book that shows you how to drastically reduce the amount of creatinine and phosphorus in meat. I have been able to eat more meat without increasing my creatinine value. Thank you! -- this book was LONG overdue!

Self-help instructions and personal independence are important to me. As a renal patient, my creatinine and phosphorus were out of control. Using the simple 1, 2, 3 step instructions in this book helped me to positively effect my blood test each month.

This book along with 'Food, Fuel, Fitness' was, I had hoped, going to help me prepare meals for my husband, who is in renal failure. It, like the other, told me to soak everything in water before cooking. Just another disappoinment and waste of money.
