Low Carb High Protein Diet Not Harmful to Kidneys
Conclusions In healthy obese individuals, a low-carbohydrate high-protein weight-loss diet over 2 years was not
associated with noticeably harmful effects on GFR, albuminuria, or ﬂuid and electrolyte balance compared with a
low-fat diet. Further follow-up is needed to determine even longer-term effects on kidney function.
