      Kidney disease patients better off on vegetarian diet

      Posted Atallheadlinenews.com

      New research indicates kidney patients may benefit greatly from adhering to a vegetarian diet.

      Researchers with the Indiana University School of Medicine and the Roudebush Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center said eating vegetables instead of meat can help kidney patients rid their bodies of phosphorous, which is found in dietary protein and is a common food additive.

      Kidney disease patients cannot adequately rid their bodies of phosphorous, and high levels of the mineral can lead to heart disease and death.

      Medical guidelines recommend low phosphorus diets for kidney disease patients, but phosphorous content is not listed on food labels, the researchers said in a statement.

      A full report on the study appears in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology.
