Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It is the time to be grateful for all the good in life with family and friends. It is also the time to share delicious traditional food! Sometimes, this holiday feast can be large in portion and loaded with sugar, salt, fat, etc. But we can bring a healthy Thanksgiving dinner to the table if we make a few changes to the recipe!



Classic main course for Thanksgiving! Here are some tips to make the popular turkey dish a bit healthier. Choose natural fresh or frozen turkey over ones that are seasoned, basted, or pre-stuffed to avoid having too many additives. Herb-roasted turkey can be a good choice. If a stuffed turkey is preferred, consider adding lemon, apple, onion, garlic, rosemary, and sage.


Pumpkin Pie

Another popular and traditional dessert on Thanksgiving. Tasty, but this one can be tricky for people with kidney problems. Kidney Kitchen has offered an alternative pumpkin dessert recipe so everyone can join the celebration! If pumpkin pie is a must-have dessert, limit the portion size.

"Can doctors know how well my kidney is functioning by simply looking at my creatinine level in blood?" That's properly a common question to ask. In short, the answer is no. Today, we will go through what creatinine is and how it is linked with kidney function.   Creatinine is a waste product produced when creatine, a molecule that provides energy to the muscles, is broken down. Creatinine is then eliminated from the body through the kidneys. When the ki
Swelling is one of the common signs for people living with kidney problems. It often indicates the kidneys do not remove excess fluid. Swelling can happen in ankles, feet, or any body part. It is rather uncomfortable because it can affect walking or cause shortness of breath.   There is an easy test to get an idea if one has swelled. Press on a bony area on the lower legs for around 5 seconds. Observe any pit formed, and if there is a dimple, note the depth of the pit

According to professional recommendations, using an eGFR level is a more accurate indication of kidney health.   Creatinine is a by-product generated from protein metabolism. Therefore, muscle mass and diet can affect creatinine generation. For example, a muscular person or a person who cr
