Welcome. I have to be on a low protein diet also due to having a problem with microalbumin. I have arthritis in my knees and back and also a bulging disk in my lower back. The easiest exercise for me is taking a walk. Some days I can go further than others. Whatever exercise you do, start small and build up. Most people recommend that you start out with just 10 minutes and gradually add to it. I wish you the best of luck.

Hi - It sounds to me like you could do with an appointment with a clinical Dietitian. Eating low protein, you will need to ensure that your bases are covered, and it might be that a supplement or two is in order!
Re the exercises, I have scoliosis of the spine and also arthritis of the spine and hips. My main form of exercise is putting my groceries and laundry away one at a time. That way I can sit when needed, IF needed, and don't have to walk anywhere to do it. Because the floor has a wee bit of spring to it (wooden floor with carpet on top) AND because a floor is flat, there is a lot less jolting on the joints. Other than that, Pilates is a very good form of exercise, too. My Pilates Instructor is also a qualified practicing Physiotherapist who is aware of my skeletal conditions, so can steer me away from unsuitable exercises or give me an alternative to what the others are doing, to ensure my physical safety.
You will find that if you create a SparkPage you will gets tons more support from the members - it is a great way to make good friends, too :-)
I hope that you find something that works well for you.
I have renal issues which requires a low sodium and low protein diet. I have always enjoyed cooking and experiencing with new recipes. I retired in January 31, 2012 and am looking for exercises that I am able to do with joint issues. I have managed to lose about ten pounds since my retirement, but need emotional support.
