New published research has found that plant-based diets should be used in the prevention and management of chronic kidney disease. Plant based diets have been recommended for multiple health ailments including diabetes, hypertension and obesity.

Pending additional research, plant-based diets should be used in the management of chronic kidney disease. A study found that red and processed meats are associated with increased risk of CKD and quicker progression for those people that already suffer from CKD. Other analysis found that replacing  one serving of red meat was linked with reduced CKD.The use of plant-based diets in CKD may have other benefits in the areas of hypertension, weight, hyperphosphatemia, reductions in hyperfiltration, and, possibly, mortality.

According to the study, ” Healthcare providers in general medicine and nephrology can consider plant-based diets as an important tool for prevention and management of CKD.”
