high protein diet???????????????????????

  1. high protein diet???????????????????????


    My wife just told me today, that my sis-in-laws friends dad passed away. Said he was into bodybuilding and supplements. Took whey and other supps for years. Anyway she said Doc found high protein in blood or something and they couldnt do nothing for him. A few weeks later he passed away, he was in his late 50's....looked to be in late 30's because he kept in shape. wondering if any of you have heard of anything like this or thoughts on the subject.


  2. Sorry to hear that Scorpio.

  3. high protein in blood? doesnt make sense to me

  4. Sorry for your loss. Sounds like a specific metabolic disorder rather than ODing on protein per se. One of the docs/med students will probably know for sure.

  5. I think that when someone has a heart attack, there is normally a high protein amount in blood due to the ehart attack itself, not vice versa

    I'm really sorry for hearing about this loss....but I really dont think the high protein found in his blood is linked to his healthy eating habbits. How did he pass away? If it was linked to a heartattack the high levels of protein in his blood could be the ST2 levels which normally go up because the heart muscles have to work very hard to compensate for various dying tissues.

  7. I do think that certain proteins become elevated in the blood when there inflammation in the heart. Specifically, I believe one is called C Reactive Protein. Also, the ST2 as mentioned is another linked to heart problems.

    If there was high levels of protein found in his urine, then one could believe he had a kidney disorder. Kidney disease could certainly lead to death. High levels of protein in urine can be observed by having bubbly urine.

    For those of you who follow very high protein diets, do you notice bubbly/foamy urine?
