Well, I also have a take on the salt substitute. Vandy has preached to us almost to the point of getting mad. I felt like a school kid in trouble. Our liver Dr. is allowing 2000 daily of salt. The nutritionist told us DO NOT cook with salt. When the meal is done add 1/4 tsp to your plate right before you eat it. I thought that was really interesting. Also as far as the protein. I got so many different opinions. I think I'm sticking with Vandy. He said get as much protein in Jerry as I possible can. Don't worry about amonia. Just give more lactalose. The reason being Jerry's muscle mass is totally gone. Thats why I'm wondering if there is anyone out there that has the same problem. He loves schrimp so he eats that quit often. Pretty much NO beef. We were told to stay away from the salt substitutes because they are packed with potassium. Something he can not have. Basically we were told that his body is eating it self. Is there anyone on this forum that has had a transplant. If they are willing to share I would like to know what the experience was like.
