    Hi There x

    Well, i stay in Scotland UK. and i get my low protein foods on prescription, and we get it free even though we are employed.

    I think this varies though depending where you live x best person to talk with is either your dietician or ur consultant x

    The foods are sooooo much better and sooo advance than a few years ago which makes the diet sooo much easier to control x

    Hope you find out how to get your low protein foods x :-) x

    I completely know what you're going through. I used to get my low protein foods from cambrooke foods  at It is expensive if your insurance wont cover it. I am trying to find out if my insurance will cover it as well, it would be so much easier to get on diet if I could get those foods.
