That is good overall, however don't use that as an excuse to carry on eating those foods. The fact that your phosphate was a 'little high' indicates your eating wasn't wise choices for you.

The doctor came today to review our bloodtests. My phosphate was a little high but not overly so. I was honest with him & told him abt the mushroom burger with cheese stuffing & those few nuts. I forgot to tell him abt the milkshake though.

Overall he was quite pleased with my bloodwork! Thankfully, there was no increase in meds or injections AND I lost half a kilo!!!!!

Good for you, but I am certain you do not have the serious health issues that Elaine has.

"If my phosphate levels go up, I will just explain to the doctor that I have been having foods I shouldn't (even in small amounts). Hopefully, I won't be prescribed expensive phosphate blockers. I will just tell him I messed up. It's not that my phosphate blockers aren't working."

I don't want to sound mean or critical. But, I do hope you need to be prescribed those expensive phosphate blockers. And I will tell you why. You have been very callous when it comes to your health. You have blatantly ignored the advice of your doctor, dialysis nurses, renal dietitian, etc for years.

Maybe when you have to pay for those expensive phosphate blockers, you'll be more careful. How do you think your father will feel knowing he has to pay the extra cost each month for you ?

I won't know till the blood test results come out and are distributed. Probably next week, I'll keep you posted.

Me and my Mom went to the mall again. I only just got back not too long ago, around 3:35pm. I just had a bite to eat. My Mom and I did have some lunch but it was a very small portion. Maybe I won't have dinner.

My Mom cooked Thai Fish laksa yesterday. My Dad had 3 heaping bowls for dinner! I had a big bowl for lunch yesterday. Then my Mom's half bowl because she couldn't finish what she took. I just added more veggies and more of the fish gravy and finished that half bowl that she couldn't finish.

I had Bible Study yesterday. I had a fish ball stick (4 fish balls) from Old Chang Kee as a light dinner. I had to fast from 9 pm on wards for this blood test. Which meant no supper for me after Bible study.

I did have one small fresh date though. Only because I haven't tried one before. I think they are called jujubes.

How did your blood test go?

I hate to sound like a broken record. Your kidneys don't process things like other peoples kidneys. So even a few nuts here and there. Or a little cheese. Just a little chocolate. Won't be good for you.

Healthy kidneys can balance phosphates and dump what they don't need. Yours cannot.

There are two things that I loathe.
One is Winter!
The second are people who act like they are perfect. Especially when it comes to their diet.

@PALUTE1 - the OP has a very serious health issue which means she is supposed to be on a very restricted diet which limits Potassium, Phosphate, Sodium, Fluid, etc. as per her Medical Teams directions, however those instructions are often disregarded, to her detriment.

I haven't been buying anymore cheese. The only time I had some cheese was in that mushroom burger. I ate that burger not in a fast food joint but a fancy cafe. So, the ingredients aren't processed. As for the nuts and chocolate, I didn't eat handfuls of them, just 2 or 3 small pieces and not everyday.

worrying won't accomplish ANYTHING.

Focus on what you CAN control.

Learn from your mistakes and do better.

I find it's much easier to avoid temptation ONCE (at the store) than it is to have the 'forbidden' item in my home, testing my willpower over and over.

Please let us know how the test goes.

EOWYN24241 .... I know it must be very hard to go without things you want to eat but as others have posted, your health depends on it. If you don't watch out, things will get worse and you will have to give up a lot more things. Think of the blood test as a red light reminder to put you back on track.
Best wishes to you emoticon

How have you been doing with cheese ? You posted a thread in the panic room saying that you had to cut out cheese because cheese was high in phosphate.

If you haven't been monitoring your food choices or trying to stick to the dietary recommendations of your doctor and renal dietitian, you really can't be all that shocked if your blood work tests are less than stellar.

So, yes, you should be worried !

You are choosing to deliberately eat foods that you should not be eating.
How do can you expect great blood work results when you do things to sabotage it?

Elaine - you know and I know that you weren't 'sneaking in' a few of anything.

You do it with full knowledge of the consequences. It is a bit late to be worried AFTER the fact! You should think about that before you let your greed get the better of you, and you KNOW that it IS greed.

Don't get me wrong - I feel for you that you can't eat what you like. Actually, I will re-phrase that:

".... that you SHOULDN'T be eating whatever you like." You KNOW that your life literally depends on it!

I am having a blood test done tomorrow at the dialysis center I go to. I am worried because even though I haven't gone overboard with the high phosphate foods like nuts and chocolate, I've had a few pieces off and on.

I went grocery shopping with some friends and couldn't resist getting 2 packets of nuts which were on sale (CNY is coming soon). I got a packet of walnuts and a packet of almonds, all baked with minimal salt.

I've been eating a few nuts but not everyday. I am just worried that my phosphate levels will go up after sneaking in a few nuts and a few pieces of chocolate on alternate days!
