Bhubaneswar: Eating meat-rich diets increase the risk of kidney failure among patients suffering from chronic kidney disease.

A study said, among patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), patients who consumed high acid diets (meat-rich) were three-times more likely to develop kidney failure than patients who consumed low acid diets which are rich in fruits and vegetables.

The researchers have opined that patients with chronic kidney disease should pay more attention to diet consumption of acid-rich foods to reduce progression to kidney failure, in addition to employing recommended guidelines such as taking kidney-sparing medication and avoiding kidney toxins.

The team found that higher levels of dietary acid load were strongly linked with progression to kidney failure among patients, the researcher added.
