Exercise, Bone Disease and Chronic Kidney Disease

by Patricia Gordon, R.N., Ph.D

Disturbances in mineral and bone metabolism occur early in the course of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Without prevention or treatment these disturbances progress to renal osteodystrophy encompassing varying combinations and degrees of high- and low-turnover bone disorders.

Although a broad body of literature indicates that load-bearing exercise has favorable effects on bone metabolism in the adult and aged skeleton [1, 2], there are no studies on the impact of exercise on bone in chronic or end stage renal disease (ESRD). However, much of what is known regarding the effects of exercise on bone, particularly in osteoporosis, may be helpful in the preservation of bone strength in these populations. This may be especially relevant due to the contribution of age-associated osteoporosis as the average age of CKD and ESRD patients increases.

While high impact activity is especially osteogenic [3], moderate intensity walking results in modest increases in lumbar bone mineral density (BMD) [4], indicating that low-impact activities can have a beneficial effect. This is an important consideration for individuals with kidney disease since they are prone to fatigue and generally have low exercise capacity [5]. Read more…

Exercise Guru to the Stars Supports BTD

If you’ve ever wondered how celebrities and models get those fabulous bodies, we’re going to let you in on a little secret…their fitness trainer puts them on the Blood Type Diet®. Personal trainer and fitness expert Justin Gelband works with actors like Josh Duhamel, Topher Grace, Anne Hathaway and most of the Victoria’s Secret catalog and runway models to get their physiques into top condition. The first step, he says, is changing their eating patterns and getting them to eat right for their type.

Gelband, a former competitive swimmer, says he discovered the Blood Type Diet® about 7 years ago when a client, a British DJ who is famous on the international nightclub circuit, told Gelband that his doctor recommended that he go on the Blood Type Diet®. Gelband decided to give it a try.

“I read the book and started looking at how it works,” Gelband said, “I cut out the avoids, limited the neutrals and loaded up on the beneficial foods. Almost immediately, I had more energy, better digestion, I was leaner and I felt better.”

Exercise Right for Your Blood Type

Des Depass , a personal fitness trainer who employs the concepts of Eat Right 4 Your Type® and the GenoType® Diet with his clients. He says that when clients exercise right for their type, he notices extreme examples of body change – usually in the direction that they are looking for.

“Some people say, ‘I want to slim down’ or ‘I want to bulk up’ or whatever they want to do with their body. As long as they follow their diet, they are capable of accomplishing that. It’s perfect! Everyone gets exactly what they are looking for.”

He first learned about the program from his mother, who practices Holistic Detoxification, Colon Therapy and is also a Massage Therapist. “She had gone to see Dr. D’Adamo and when she came back, she handed me Eat Right 4 Your Type®and said that I have to start eating differently,” Des explains, “I am blood type O and had been eating closer to my mother’s type A vegetarian style.”

Go Cycling for Your Health and Fun, Part II

Getting started for ciclyng

The beauty of cycling is its flexibility. You can enjoy cycling virtually anytime – by yourself, with friends, for leisure, in competition or as a mode of transport.

If you are new to cycling or not a confident bicycle rider, it can be a good idea to start cycling on bike paths. These are usually traffic-free and offer a scenic route. Cycling around your local roads can also be a good idea, as they usually have less traffic, slower motor vehicle speeds,and the roads are familiar.

Riding on local roads can be a great way to familiarise yourself with riding on the road and gaining confidence in cycling. Once you are more confident, you may want to use bicycle lanes on main roads. Whilst main roads are usually the most direct way to get to destinations, they usually carry more traffic.

Remember to maintain your safety and the safety of others at all times.
