Arghh don't know what to do!!!

#1
Hiya
Would appreciate some advice please girls...

I did CD 4yrs ago and lost about 4 stone but had to come off as got a very bad kidney infection (had previously had a couple of UTIs whilst on the diet but nothing major) and told I had to start eating straight away

Couple of years after that I tried CD again but not with my mind set to it and within a week got another kidney infection so once again gave up and the cd councilor said it could be too much protein for me as I don't eat alot on a regular basis

Anyway fast forward to now and I've had no more bouts of infections so started exante 2weeks 2 days ago and have lost just over a stone which I am very very pleased about however I have been for a wee about 40 million times and can feel my kidneys twinging again,plus my heads pounding and I feel dreadfull :mad: I'm gutted!!!!!:sigh:

So what do I do,I'm thinking a vlcd is not for me and I'm devastated but as a mother of 3 kids my health is far more important..However I don't want to regain the weight I have lost.I also have over 2 weeks worth of shakes left and I'm guessing I can't return them!!

Can I use the shakes like you would use slim fast?? so 2 a day and then a 400 cal meal (or whatever it is) and how do I ensure I don't put any weight on??

many thanks

a very upset and gutted cdg xx

Not had any other bouts of it

I would avoid the toast as its carbs, you can have an omelette with cheese, or mushrooms, or any other protein type foods. Don't introduce carbs too soon, or in great amounts x x

Awww :(
Could you not try WS for a couple of days, to see it that helps ?

Edit.. sorry, just reread your post. WS is 3 packs a day, plus a 400cal meal...so very similar to SF :)

Hello

I think you should seek medical advice. VLCD are not for everyone and your story suggests it puts a strain on your kidneys. It's not with risking your health but your GP or practice nurse could monitor you more closely and make sure your kidneys are coping ok. If your blood tests show you are ok they may think it's ok to continue but in your case I think it might be unwise to continue without some more careful monitoring.
I hope that helps, I don't want to tell you what to do but it may be just starting the diet - the lots of wees! And feeling awful , headaches etc But it's best to be careful.
Hope that helps
