Patients who are struggling with a chronic kidney disease and consume meat rich and highly acidic diet on a regular basis are only giving a boost to their already prevalent disease. According to the researchers, the Kidney dysfunction can go on to hamper the organ’s power to eliminate the acid from the body, which results in a high acid condition known as metabolic acidosis.
Experts have gone on to suspect that a high acid diet, which is rich in meat and is low in vegetables and fruits, is known to aggravate the already prevalent condition. The study has also been able to find out alkali supplementation is known to lead to the loss of kidney function in patients who are suffering from chronic kidney disease.
The researchers tracked the nutritional analysis of 1500 kidney disease patients over a period of 14 years. They tracked the intake of every patient of high acid foods such as meats in opposition of their intake of low acid foods such as fruits and vegetables.
The result pointed out that people who consumed high acid diets appeared to face thrice the risk of kidney failure as compared to those who consumed low acid diets. Patients suffering from chronic kidney disease tend to pay more attention to the diet consumption of acid rich foods in order to reduce the progression of kidney failure. In addition to diet, it is also vital to take kidney sparing medication and avoiding kidney toxins. The high costs of medication as well as dialysis treatment can be avoided by adopting a more healthy diet which is rich in fruits and vegetables.
