What to know about a low-protein diet

 2 months ago       36 Views

A low-protein diet puts less strain on the kidneys. As a result, this type of diet can benefit people with kidney-related disorders, such as kidney disease or phenylketonuria.

When a person eats protein, the body produces a compound called urea. If the kidneys are not functioning well, urea can build up in the blood and cause fatigue and a loss of appetite.

By making key changes, a person can develop a satisfying and diverse low-protein diet plan that works for them.

In this article, we discuss the benefits and risks associated with a low-protein diet. We also list some of the best foods to eat and avoid when limiting protein intake.
