is a high protein diet bad for your kidneys?So, is a high-protein diet bad for your kidneys?
In a word ‘no’.
More specifically, protein may only bad for your kidneys if you have bad kidneys 😉 .

If you use the formula I use to calculate how much protein you need to build muscle, you’ll probably be consuming about 20-25% of your daily calories from protein. Hardly enough to place undue stress on the kidneys.

To illustrate the point here’s a study that tested the hypothesis that a high-protein consumption would adversely affect the kidneys.

One group is put on a high-protein diet, the other on a low-protein vegetarian diet. The conclusion – speaking of the higher-protein diet it says:

“such a diet does not significantly affect kidney function with “normal aging” in healthy subjects.”

Enjoy your salmon everyone 🙂
