The right diet may help prevent CKD, new study finds

New York, NY (April 17, 2013) – Poor eating habits, smoking and obesity are associated with increased risk for kidney disease, according to new research published today online in the National Kidney Foundation's American Journal of Kidney Disease.

Researchers led by Alex Chang, MD, MS of Johns Hopkins University found that people with normal kidney function whose diet quality was poor—high in red and processed meats, sugar-sweetened beverages and sodium, and low in fruit, legumes, nuts, whole grains and low-fat dairy—were more likely to develop kidney disease. Only 1% of individuals with no unhealthy lifestyle-related factors developed protein in their urine, an early indicator of kidney damage. That is compared with 13% of participants with three unhealthy lifestyle factors such as obesity, poor diet and smoking.
