Diet Choices May Help Diabetics Stave Off Kidney Disease

News) -- A healthy diet and moderate alcohol consumption may help people with type 2 diabetes reduce their risk of chronic kidney disease or slow its progression, a new study indicates.

Researchers looked at more than 6,200 diabetes patients, and found that nearly 32 percent of them developed chronic kidney disease and about 8 percent died during 5.5 years of follow-up.

Patients with the healthiest diets had a lower risk of kidney disease and of dying than those with the least healthy diets. Patients who ate more than three servings of fruit per week were less likely to develop chronic kidney disease than those who ate less fruit.

The study was published online Aug. 12 in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine.

Patients with the lowest intake of total and animal protein were more likely to develop kidney disease than those with the highest intake, the researchers also found. Moderate alcohol intake was associated with a lower risk of kidney disease and death. Sodium intake was not associated with kidney disease risk, according to a journal news release.

"A healthy diet and moderate intake of alcohol may decrease the incidence or progression of [chronic kidney disease] among individuals with type 2 diabetes. Sodium intake, within a wide range, and normal protein intake are not associated with [chronic kidney disease]," concluded Daniela Dunkler, of McMaster University in Ontario, Canada, and colleagues.

Could the new findings place an added burden on people who already have to be careful of their food choices?

"Patients with both type 2 diabetes and kidney disease may be frustrated by the numerous dietary restrictions that are recommended by their health care team," Dr. Holly Kramer, of Loyola University, and Dr. Alex Chang, of Johns Hopkins University, wrote in an accompanying commentary.

"Patients may even ask 'What can I eat?'" they added. "Perhaps the best dietary advice we can give to patients with type 2 diabetes and kidney disease is the same as the advice for those who want to avoid chronic kidney disease, and the same advice for preventing and treating hypertension, and the same dietary advice for everyone: Eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy products, and whole grains while minimizing saturated and total fat."

  • Just try anatomic therapy,search for it on net,see its vedios, down load it book and apply it, may be (sure) you will finds all solutions. I am applying it on my self and getting positive results. No medicine,no diet controle, just simple steps in finetuning our eating,drinking, sleepings habits.

    My best wishes for you.

  • I have unloaded the book and went through the same specially the chapter concerning diabetes.

    The views expressed are highly speculative and the cure is also vague and unconvincing as it is not based on research or supported by established medical science.

  • Book is not only for diabetec, its principles applies to all diseases. I am also a diabetec from last 15 yrs. I also came to know about it from net. Than viewed its vedios in hindi which took 9 hourse to view.Then down loded this book and read every thing. From last two months I am applying its guidelines on my self.I am finding positive results so far.

    Yo can test it on yourself as I am doing and check its speculate /vagueness. If you like to see my results so far you can click on hyperlink
