Had to get back on staff so I could update a few things with the board (the PTM sidebar section, add a forum for the ATL, etc). Still won't be fully active for a while, but I'll do my best to post every now and then. The site looks to be doing great, and I'm sure the trade rumors will trigger even more activity as we dive into the offseason.

Thanks for the comments, everyone.

I'm alright, not really sure what to think. I'm feeling good, but this kidney doctor keeps telling me my kidneys are at 40% function. He told me last week that I need to lay off the protein, asked if I eat a lot of red meat. Obvious answer is yes.

But he acts like he wants me to become a vegetarian, and for me, that's ridiculous.

In one test, my creatinine level was at 2.8, which is pretty bad, but a little after my convulsion (which is what landed me in the hospital, nothing to do with my kidneys, initially). I forgot the norm, but it should be under two, and in the other two tests, I'm not sure if it dropped as much as it should've.

Too many question to ask. A lot of things are still up in the air, and docs can't answer some of those questions (something I'll never understand, because they have ran many tests on me already).

When they first told me all of this, they made it sound like I was toast, that I was looking at dialysis soon, so my knee-jerking reaction was to get ready for the heat. Now I'm just sitting around, not really sure what's going on, with a nephrologist telling me I'm at 40%, that my diet has to change, blood pressure has to be lower, blood sugars have to be lower, etc. Doing my best, but it's just insane what they are asking me to do.

Haha, I'm trying. He actually came out and said it in a joking manner, although I'm sure he would want me to be...but he just kept telling me to cut back on a lot of things.

The biggest problem wouldn't be my appetite and craving meat, but more about me being a diabetic and needing to balance proteins and carbs. Being vegan AND diabetic is one of the most difficult lifestyles out there, relating to diets and such. Most of what vegans eat wouldn't keep my blood sugars up, and with me needing to be active (which brings them down even more), it's next to impossible.

Just so much [expletive] going on right now...it's annoying. I'm waiting for a massive NBA trade to keep my mind elsewhere. :laughing:

well outside from diabetes and your kidney problem, eating a lot of processed foods and red meat will [expletive] up your colon.. don't add another ailment to your body. you can always try eating fish, but not too much.. or try eating steamed white meats aka chicken breasts. go for steamed foods! as for energy it's gonna be hard because mostly we need carbs for energy and carbs when digested is basically sugar. but i know a supplement product used by most of the olympic athletes! it's called overdrive by pharmanex.

If you have been eating meat all your life, you should just try easing in some vegeterian food, not going totally vegan. (vegeterian not vegan)


My father has been a vegeterian for many years (he eats fish,eggs etc, but no meat) and somehow he developed a colon cancer....
It all depends on your body, you just have to see what types of foods keep your levels more or less normal.

Wishing you health and recovery. Myself, I only have one kidney, one is normal, the other is in what is called agensis, measing it never grew. You can function on one kidney but
I am not cetain if two that function as a half each are equal to one full one.

Seasons the Celtics lost ECF when Lakers won the championship (7): 1953, 1954, 1972, 1980, 1982, 1988, 2002
In NBA history, the Lakers have finished better than the Celtics by a margin of 41-25!

Yeah lots of times I mix half meat and half tofu and it taste just as good. It would be hard to go total vegan.
