This month’s KidneySteps Newsletter is out. It focuses on food and kidney health. Isn’t it great that researchers are devoting more time studying the effects of diet and other lifestyle factors on kidney function? These are things within our control, giving us some power to stop or slow kidney disease progression.
Numerous recently-published studies help explain the impact of our eating patterns on the kidneys. These delicate organs can endure some poor eating but are susceptible to our over-indulgence of junk and processed foods. Preservatives, high in phosphates and salt, are kidney killers. Sugar is developing as another kidney enemy. Fruits and vegetables appear to be kidney heros.
