A new study has found that reducing salt intake and increased consumption of vegetable protein provide clear benefits for the heart and kidney health of patients with chronic kidney disease.
The findings point to the power of salt restriction in potentially prolonging kidney disease patients’ lives.
Excessive salt intake is consistently linked to increased risk of heart disease and worsening kidney function.
People with chronic kidney disease (CKD) may be particularly susceptible to salt’s detrimental effects due to the kidney’s important role in controlling salt balance and their increased risk of dying from heart disease.
Until now, though, the effect of salt restriction in these patients has not been well explored.
