Can a high-protein diet harm your kidneys?
Can a high-protein diet harm your kidneys?

Your kidneys perform a number of functions, including filtering your blood to get rid of waste, regulating blood pressure via water and sodium balance, maintaining a healthy blood pH level, and creating certain hormones. When your body metabolizes the protein you cat, a substance called urea is created, and the kidneys have to remove it from your blood and prepare it for elimination through urine."Thus, the more protein you eat, the more your kidneys have to work. This is the basis of the myth, the more your kidneys have to work, the more stressed they become".
