I usually eat between 7 & 8 hundred calories. I don't have a desire to eat. The doctor put me on 1000 calories. I go to TOPS and one of the ladies said I will get old timers disease by eating so few calories. You have to feed your brain. They had a member this happened to and is in a nursing home. Is is true? Also I have kidney disease.

I'd listen to my doctor - kidney disease is nothing to play around with.

No doubt, listen to your physician. That woman is NO physician. Who cares what she says or said.

I'm also a kidney disease, ESRD dialysis patient at 48 years old. I go to early morning dialysis and find that I have NO hunger after dialysis. I feel you! I've been forcing myself to eat some form of protein (muffin tin scrambled egg, small steak, protein bar, etc). Otherwise, I end up snacking at 11 at night (also bad). Good luck! Keep trying new things that work. It's hard for people to understand how draining kidney disease is, and it's easy to get isolated due to a lessened activity level. I'm glad you have an interesting husband...anybody that repairs and lives on a boat is fantastic. Happy dieting, friend.

I have a low appetite a lot of days as well but this isn't necessarily healthy. Does it help you eating smaller portions throughout the day? Then even if you are not hungry you will be getting some more food in your system without it being too much of a difficulty.

The only thing that has ever worked for me is a homemade crudite' platter or veggie/fruit platter. To fight boredom, I try different things. It actually makes me hungrier for lunch. If my bloodwork has been good, I celebrate by putting some things on it that are "in moderation" items for dialysis patients (cleared by my dietitian), like olives or small portions of soft cheese like mozzarella. I'm used to counting phosphorus or potassium, now I'm transitioning to losing weight. I don't know what works for you, but whatever snack that you can keep out and handy. Just seeing it makes you want to eat it sometimes. Also, there are whey protein powders to make shakes. Just check with your dietitian to see what kind. I've tried it and it isn't a craving of mine, I prefer bars. Maybe drinking a snack would help???? Good luck. I'm pulling for you.
