12 Symptoms of Kidney Disease That You Must Know ..........


Most people are not aware of the fact that kidney diseases can be silent killers. They may not show any symptoms for a long time till the situation becomes critical. It is important to recognize the symptoms of kidney diseases to catch them early. Here is a list of twelve such symptoms you should look out for:

Changes in your urinary function : The first symptom of kidney disease is changes the amount, frequency of your urination. There may be an increase or decrease in amount and/or its frequency, especially at night. It may also look more dark colored. You may feel the urge to urinate but are unable to do so when you get to the restroom.

Difficulty or pain during voiding : Sometimes you have difficulty or feel pressure or pain while voiding. Urinary tract infections may cause symptoms such as pain or burning during urination. When these infections spread to the kidneys they may cause fever and pain in your back.

Blood in the urine : This is a symptom of kidney disease which is a definite cause for concern. There may be other reasons, but it is advisable to visit your doctor in case you notice it.

Swelling : Kidneys remove wastes and extra fluid from the body. When they are unable to do so, this extra fluid will build up causing swelling in your hands, feet, ankles and/or your face.

Extreme fatigue and generalized weakness : Your kidneys produce a hormone called erythropoietin which helps make red blood cells that carry oxygen. In kidney disease lower levels of erythropoietin causes decreased red blood cells in your body resulting in anemia. There is decreased oxygen delivery to cells causing generalized weakness and extreme fatigue.

Dizziness & Inability to concentrate : Anemia associated with kidney disease also depletes your brain of oxygen which may cause dizziness, trouble with concentration, etc.

Feeling cold all the time : If you have kidney disease you may feel cold even when in a warm surrounding due to anemia.
Pyelonephritis (kidney infection) may cause fever with chills.

Skin rashes and itching : Kidney failure causes waste build-up in your blood. This can causes severe itching and skin rashes.

Ammonia breath and metallic taste : Kidney failure increases level of urea in the blood (uraemia). This urea is broken down to ammonia in the saliva causing urine-like bad breath called ammonia breath. It is also usually associated with an unpleasant metallic taste (dysgeusia) in the mouth.

Nausea and vomiting : The build-up of waste products in your blood in kidney disease can also cause nausea and vomiting.

Shortness of breath : Kidney disease causes fluid to build up in the lungs. And also, anemia, a common side-effect of kidney disease, starves your body of oxygen. You may have trouble catching your breath due to these factors.

Pain in the back or sides : Some cases of kidney disease may cause pain. You may feel a severe cramping pain that spreads from the lower back into the groin if there is a kidney stone in the ureter. Pain may also be related to polycystic kidney disease, an inherited kidney disorder, which causes many fluid-filled cysts in the kidneys. Interstitial cystitis, a chronic inflammation of the bladder wall, causes chronic pain and discomfort.
It is important to identify kidney disease early because in most cases the damage in the kidneys can’t be undone. To reduce your chances of getting severe kidney problems, see your doctor when you observe one or more of the above symptoms. If caught early, kidney disease can be treated very effectively.

Tips For Health ....... Drink Water !


Sarah Smith is a 42 year old mother of two young kids in the UK. She, like many others, openly admitted to not drinking the recommended 2 to 3 liters of water daily. She suffered from poor and sluggish indigestion and regular headaches. Following consultations with medical professionals for both issues she decided to take heed of the advice given – in both cases she had been told that she needed to up her intake of water. She decided to document and photograph what happened in a self imposed experiment whereby she would drink 3 liters, just over 5 pints, of water per day, every day for an entire month and see if she could feel any benefits.

At the outset Sarah took a long hard look at her face noting that “I am 42, but have to admit I look more like 52 in this picture, which is shocking. There are dark shadows under and around my eyes, which make me look exhausted, a profusion of wrinkles and strange reddish blotches, and my skin lacks any lustre. It looks dead….even my lips look shrivelled.” She spread the water out during the day aiming to drink a big jug of water in the morning, another in the afternoon with a third in the evening.

At the end of the FIRST WEEK she had already noticed that her bowel function was improved and her urine was virtually clear as the water was flushing out her previously dehydrated poorly functioning kidneys. She noticed sudden skin breakouts, which were a result of the toxins being eliminated from throughout her body. However her headaches were already gone and her previous joint stiffness first thing in the morning was vastly improved. Water is vital for lubricating the joints.

WEEK TWO saw an improvement in her skin tone and general complexion although she noted that her eyes were still wrinkled but said “they look less crepey and shadowy than before”. She also had a visibly flatter stomach and her smart husband paid her the ultimate compliment by noting that her cellulite had vanished! Significantly she had another week headache free.

On to WEEK THREE  when Sarah was happy to find that her eye wrinkles and dark circles had all but disappeared and her skin was plumper and healthier looking. She noted that she was actually eating less by this stage as she had fallen into the common trap of reading signals from her stomach as being hunger pangs whereas they were actually thirst pangs. Research has shown that 37 per cent of people actually mistake thirst signals for hunger signals. The plentiful water had now stopped her from continually falling into that unhealthy trap.

So what about the end of WEEK FOUR? Sarah said “I genuinely can’t believe the difference in my face. I look like a different woman. The dark shadows around my eyes have all but disappeared and the blotches have gone. My skin is almost as dewy as it was when I was a child. The transformation is nothing short of remarkable.” She was leaner, fitter and nobody can deny the astonishing change to her appearance. She changed nothing else in her daily routine apart from the water intake. Here are the before and after photographs:


To those already of you already converted to drinking enough water these results will merely confirm what you already know, but to anyone who is guilty of not doing so, will this persuade you to try this for yourself ?

10 Tips Kempiskan Perut ...........

8 Drinks to Boosts Your Immune System ..........

One of the easiest and most effective ways to protect your body from illnesses is to consume foods and drinks that contain substances that have immune system boosting qualities. Many fruits and vegetables have high levels of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that can strengthen the immune system, and you can turn them into nutritional juices that are highly beneficial to your health. By ingesting these drinks on a regular basis, you have a chance of experiencing less health problems.

1. Lemon Juice

Lemon is one of the cheapest fruits that you can find in the grocery store or market, but it can bring amazing benefits to your health. This fruit contains lots of antioxidants and vitamin C, which can improve the immune system, and it also balances the levels of alkali and acids in the body. As such, drinking lemonade or lemon tea regularly will make your body less susceptible to illnesses.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

The main ingredient in apple cider vinegar is apple juice, which has a wide range of vitamins and minerals that are beneficial to the body, including calcium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, chlorine, magnesium, sulphur, iron and fluorine. This drink also contains vinegar, an acidic liquid that is known to contribute to the efficiency of the immune system.

3. Green Tea

Green tea is the perfect immune system boosting drink. It introduces a substance called epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG, into the body, and this substance can fight bacteria and prevent viruses from multiplying. According to recent research, ECGC may be able to control the development of cancer.

4. Cranberry Juice

Cranberry juice is not only a delicious drink; it is also a great source of potent antioxidants such as flavonoids and vitamin C, which are effective in promoting the immune system. Cranberry juice can also help to prevent heart diseases and improve the urinary track system.

5. Beet Juice


Beet juice does not only enhance the immune system; it can also benefit your health in other ways. Some of the essential nutrients that are present in beet juice are beta carotene, vitamin C, carotenoids, sulphur, calcium, iron, manganese and potassium choline. This drink can improve the function of the brain, cleanse blood and strengthen the gallbladder and liver. It may be too concentrated to make a pleasant drink, but it can be mixed with apple or carrot juice.

6. Kiwi Juice

Another effective immune system boosting drink is kiwi juice. This juice contains high levels of vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E, which are essential for a healthy immune system. Kiwi fruit also provides lots of fiber and potassium, and it can protect your body from heart illnesses.

7. Broccoli Juice

Regular consumption of broccoli will benefit the immune system, because the vegetable has good amounts of beta-carotene, vitamin B1 and C, calcium, protein, potassium and sulphur. Pure broccoli juice is very concentrated, and it has to be diluted with lighter juices.

8. Carrot Juice

Carrot juice is a sweet drink that is well-liked by both adults and children. Additionally, it can strengthen the immune system and bring other health benefits. It contains vitamin C, vitamin B complex, potassium, iron, sodium and phosphorus, which function to prevent illnesses, improve liver function, provide relief for the nervous system, alkalize blood and tone the walls of the intestines.


Tips to Lose Weight Without Diet and Exercise ...........


Dropping a few pounds doesn’t have to involve deprivation or intense workouts. These tricks will help you slim down the easy way

1. Drink Enough Water

There are so many reasons why water is, among other things, good for your waistline. Drinking cold water can help up your metabolism, since your body will work harder to warm up the liquid, meaning more calories burned for you. Drinking water regularly also helps keep you feeling full so you don’t snack on empty calories, and hydrating before you exercise will help release muscle-building hormones in your body — which spells good news for not only your strength goals but also your metabolism.

2. Get Enough Sleep

Celebs and doctors alike can’t stop talking about their go-to weight-loss secret: one of the keys to losing or preventing weight gain is getting enough sleep. Why? Turns out we end up eating more when we’re sleep-deprived. A recent study, for example, showed that participants who got only four hours of sleep ended up consuming 300 more calories than when they were well rested.

3. Practice Portion Control

Even if you’re not on a diet, being mindful of how much you’re eating is good practice. It can take a few minutes for your brain to recognize that you’re full, so get in the habit of knowing how much an actual serving size is (and how much it takes until you’re full), and you’ll be less apt to pack on the pounds due to overeating.

4. Drink Green Tea

Water’s not the only metabolism booster in town. Studies have shown that drinking green tea can give your metabolism a tiny increase — which can add up to over 400 extra calories burned a week! Not only that, the beverage has got some major antioxidant power, so drink up.

5. Use Your Friends

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be much easier with the support and motivation of like-minded friends. Having a healthy support group can lead to better choices for yourself; you may find yourself moving more, skipping more calorie-laden happy hours, and making other lifestyle choices that can contribute to weight loss.

Brownie Butter Cake ..........

 Brownie Butter  Cake
140g (5oz) Dark Chocolate (broken into pieces)
50g (¼ cup) Butter
50g (¼ cup) Brown sugar
1 Egg
35g (¼ cup) All purpose flour

Butter cake:
120g (½ cup) Butter
100g (½ cup) Sugar (I reduced by 1 Tbsp)
2 Eggs
120g (1 cup) All purpose flour
2g (¼ tsp) Baking powder
50ml (3 ½ Tbsp) Fresh milk
Grease and line a 10cm x 20cm (4×8-in) loaf pan with aluminium foil.
Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
To make brownie, melt chocolate and butter over low heat. Remove and leave to cool slightly. Stir in brown sugar until blended.
Add in egg, mix well. Fold in flour, mix until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove.
To make butter cake, beat butter with sugar until creamy. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Fold in sifted flour and baking powder, alternately add in fresh milk, mix to form batter.
Spread the butter cake batter over brownie, bake in oven at 160C/320F for 25-30 minutes or until cooked. Insert a cake tester in the middle to check doneness.
Cook’s Notes:
  1. I am using conversion chart. For the best results, please follow the metrics measurement.
  2. I mixed the butter cake batter while baking the brownie. Then I poured the butter cake batter VERY QUICKLY onto the “hot” brownie. The butter cake batter will melt instantly. The second time I baked this brownie butter cake, I put the butter cake batter into a piping bag and cut a big hole at the tip, pipe in the butter cake batter quickly, and  just shake and tap the pan to smooth the top.

The Benefits of Yogurt ..............



1. Yogurt can give you flat abs.

Eat 18 ounces a day and you can drop a jeans size. People who ate that much — in conjunction with cutting their total calories — lost 22 percent more weight and 81 percent more belly fat than dieters who skipped the snack, according to research from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. They also retained one-third more calorie-torching lean muscle mass, which can help you maintain weight loss. "Fat around your waist produces the hormone cortisol, which tells your body to accumulate even more belly flab," says nutrition professor and lead study author Michael Zemel, PhD. When you eat yogurt, the calcium signals your fat cells to pump out less cortisol, making it easier for you to drop pounds, while the amino acids help burn fat.



2. Most brands of yogurt contain good-for-you bacteria.

The words "live and active cultures" on the container mean that your yogurt has probiotics, beneficial bugs that live in your digestive tract and help crowd out harmful microorganisms that can cause intestinal infections. (Only a very small number of companies put yogurt through a post-pasteurization process that kills off all bacteria.)
But many varieties now also contain special strains of probiotics meant to help regulate your digestion or strengthen your immune system. The research on them isn't conclusive, however. "If you suffer from a particular health problem, like bloating or diarrhea, it's worth trying one of these products for a couple of weeks to see if it helps," says FITNESS advisory board member Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD. Otherwise, save a few dollars and stick to conventional brands.



3. Yogurt is loaded with vitamins.

One serving is a significant source of potassium, phosphorous, riboflavin, iodine, zinc, and vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid). Yogurt also contains B12, which maintains red blood cells and helps keep your nervous system functioning properly. "Vitamin B12 is found mostly in animal products, such as chicken and fish, so strict vegetarians can easily fall short," says Jackie Newgent, RD, a FITNESS advisory board member and author of Big Green Cookbook. Eating more yogurt can help close the nutrient gap: An eight-ounce serving contains 1.4 micrograms of the vitamin, about 60 percent of what adult women need daily.



4. A cup of yogurt a day can help you recover faster after a workout.

With the right ratio of protein to carbohydrates, yogurt, particularly high-protein Greek yogurt, makes an excellent post-sweat-session snack. "The perfect time to grab a container is within 60 minutes of exercise," says Keri Gans, RD, a nutritionist in New York City. The protein provides the amino acids your muscles need to repair themselves, Gans explains, and the carbohydrates replace your muscles' energy stores, which are depleted after a hard workout. It's a bonus if you drink a bottle of water along with it: The protein in yogurt may also help increase the amount of water absorbed by the intestines, improving hydration.



5. Not all yogurt is equal when it comes to calcium and vitamin D.

Since it naturally contains calcium, you'd think the amount would be the same no matter which yogurt you pick. Wrong. "The levels can vary widely from brand to brand, so you really need to check the label," . How much is in a container depends on processing. For instance, fruit yogurt tends to have less calcium than plain because the sugar and fruit take up precious space in the container. "Vitamin D isn't naturally in yogurt, but because it helps boost calcium absorption, most companies add it,"



6. Yogurt may prevent high blood pressure.

Every day 70 percent of us consume more than twice the recommended amount of salt; over time that can lead to hypertension and kidney and heart disease. The potassium in yogurt, almost 600 milligrams per eight ounces, may help flush some of the excess sodium out of your body. In fact, adults in a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition who ate the most low-fat dairy — two or more servings daily — were 54 percent less likely to develop high blood pressure than those who ate the least.



7. A daily serving of yogurt keeps colds away.

Dig into four ounces each day and you may find yourself sniffle-free in the months ahead, according to a study at the University of Vienna. Women eating this amount had much stronger and more active T cells, which battle illness and infection, than they did before they started consuming it. "The healthy bacteria in yogurt help send signals to the immune-boosting cells in your body to power up and fight off harmful bugs," says lead study author Alexa Meyer, PhD, a nutrition researcher at the university. Allergy sufferers, who typically have low levels of certain T cells, may also find relief by adding yogurt to their diets. In a study in the Journal of Nutrition, people who ate seven ounces a day had fewer symptoms than those who opted for none at all.



8. Yogurt can help your smile.

Despite its sugar content, yogurt doesn't cause cavities. When scientists at Marmara University in Turkey tested low-fat, light, and fruit flavors, they found that none of them eroded tooth enamel, the main cause of decay. The lactic acid in yogurt appears to give your gums protection as well. People who eat at least two ounces a day have a 60 percent lower risk of acquiring severe periodontal disease than those who skip it.



9. Raw doesn't mean better.

Virtually all the yogurt in your grocery store has been pasteurized — that is, exposed to high temperatures to kill any harmful pathogens. Raw-dairy fans claim that unpasteurized milk, yogurt, and cheese are better for you because they contain more health-boosting bacteria, but pasteurization doesn't destroy beneficial probiotics, Plus, studies show that those who eat raw yogurt don't have stronger immune or digestive systems than people who stick to the pasteurized stuff. And raw-dairy products carry a risk of food poisoning. "E. coli and salmonella are two of the pathogens that can lurk in these foods and end up in your body,"



10. Yogurt is a high-protein food.

Yogurt can be an excellent source of protein, but "one variety may contain more than double the protein of another," . Greek yogurt, which is strained to make it thicker, has up to 20 grams of protein per container; traditional yogurt may have as few as five grams. If you're eating it for the protein, look for brands that provide at least eight to 10 grams per serving.



What to Look For in a Yogurt

Forget the fancy promises. To find a healthy yogurt that's low in calories, fat, and sugar, follow as many of these guidelines as you can.

Per 6-ounce serving:
Calories: 100 to 150 (if you're snacking, stick to the lower end)
Fat: 3.5 grams or less (low-fat or nonfat)
Saturated fat: 2 grams or less
Protein: at least 8 to 10 grams
Sugar: 20 grams or less
Calcium: at least 20 percent of the daily value
Vitamin D: at least 20 percent of the daily value

Masukkan esen vanila dan telur satu demi satu diikuti dengan whipping krim dan jus lemon. Putar hingga sebati.

adunan kek

Masukkan adunan dalam springform yang dah ada dasar tadi.  Masukkan pula bluberry, saya masukkan satu-satu macam saya buat versi dot dot dot. Sebabnya, saya takut kek bertukar jadi biru hehehe. 

Bakar pada suhu 150C secara water bath selama 45-50 minit. Tutup suis oven dan renggangkan pintu oven biarkan kek sejuk di dalamnya selama 1 jam. 


2 cawan biskut digestive/marie yang dikisar (saya pakai biskut marie-lebih kurang 38 keping biskut)
2 sudu makan butter

600gm soft cheese (saya guna cream cheese)
3 biji telur
1 cawan gula
2 sudu makan tepung gandum
1 1/2 sk esen vanilla
1/4 sk almond extract
1 1/2 cawan blueberry


Kisar Biskut. Cairkan mentega (gunalah microwave atau panas atas api). Campur mentega dan biskut. Kepal-kepalkan. Kalau biskut berderai, tambah butter lagi.

Guna 2/3 bungkus je

Alas loyang dengan baking paper/baking parchment. Tekan-tekan biskut dalam loyang dan simpan dalam peti sejuk.

Putar krim cheese hingga berkrim.

Masukkan gula dan pukul lagi sehingga sebati. Masukkan tepung, putar lagi.

Masukkan telur sebiji demi sebiji putar lagi hingga sebati.

Masukkan vanilla dan almond extract. Putar sebentar.

Tuang adunan dalam loyang (yang dah ada biskut tadi).

Ambil blueberry dan tabur di serata kek. Guna jari je dan kalau guna blueberry daripada filling, ambil buahnya sahaja.

Panaskan oven 150-160 darjah. Bakar guna teknik water bath (klik sini untuk teknik yang betul) selama 55 minit.

Roti Kacang Merah .........

1/2 cawan air suam
1 sudu makan gula
1 sudu makan tepung gandum
Satu paket 11 gram mauripan
-biar hingga berbuih

2 sudu besar butter cair

3 cawan tepung roti
1/2 cawan air yang dibancuh dengan 12 sudu gula.
-( kurangkan jd 6 sudu saja sebab nak letak inti nanti manis sangat:)

Campur semua dan diuli spt buat doh.

- ambil dalam 45 gram doh tadi dan masukkan inti kacang merah sebanyak 17 gram. Masukkan inti dan canai. Kelar2 dan terbalikkan . Gulung dan sapu bancuhan susu di atasnya dan blh tabur bijan jika suka. Dah siap bakar 20 minit tu boleh sejukkan dan sapu butter atasnya
