Good article Claire,--- this reminds me, before i knew i had CKD oh about a month before i went to Nephrologist, i was feeling so weak and tired , i thought maybe i need a pick me up so i bought Gator Aide, i was drinking this every day, and i was not feeling any better.
When i told Neph. what i was drinking i thought she was going to have a heart attack, she said oh, no, no its full of sodium, its one of the worse things you could drink. this of course was before i knew any thing about what i should eat and not eat.
So i hope every one reads this article and please learn to read labels.

Im starting to take control of my life today. I will take care of me, love my self., be good to my self, I am strong, i can do this.

Great article Claire thank you for sharing!

I do not drink these either - I stick to water and tea, and one glass of cranberry juice.

Great article even though I don't drink them. My Daddy has had kidney stones for a long time. I see him every once in a while drink one.

Article from entitled: "Sports drinks are sometimes better than water, but can also cause kidney stones and osteoporosis"

1st paragraph:

(NaturalNews) Sports drinks are a favorite of athletes and some exercisers to quench their thirst and replenish lost nutrients. These drinks contain calcium, sodium and other minerals called electrolytes. An imbalance of electrolytes may be harmful. Sports drinks can help prevent or decrease some conditions by increasing electrolytes, but drinking them may result in complications like kidney stones, osteoporosis and calcium overdose.

Those who think they have no time for a healthy lifestyle will sooner or later will have to find time for illness.
