Hi, all,
On another site I just ran across a couple of studies (not too recent, but it's all we've got to go on) that indicate that MLD (manual lymph drainage massage) increases the amount of protein in the urine. This makes sense, since the lymph fluid you're massaging out through the kidneys is protein-rich. But for those of you with diabetes (or other conditions where urine protein is regularly measured) this might be important information for your endocrinologist or other doctors to know. If you'd like the dates and summaries of the tests to copy for your doc, PM me and I'll send it along to you.

That's good to know--just in case I ever have bloodwork after drainage massage. (not diabetic though)

Thanks for posting.
