# Reversing Kidney Decline with Diet

In this video, the speaker discusses a recent study where patients in
stage 3 and 4 of kidney disease were able to improve their kidney
function by following a specific diet. The aim is to create an
easy-to-follow eating plan for people with kidney disease.

  • Patients in the study were able to reverse the decline of their GFR
    (glomerular filtration rate) after 24 weeks of following the diet.
  • The diet is designed to be simple and effective, addressing common challenges faced by patients on a renal diet.
  • The speaker emphasizes the importance of personalization and consulting with a doctor before making any dietary changes.

# Eating Plan for Improving Kidney Function

The speaker shares examples of meals that were part of the trial’s eating plan for improving kidney function.

  • The eating plan includes oatmeal with almond milk, blueberries, and
    walnuts for breakfast. This provides plenty of calories and healthy
  • Almond milk is a low-phosphorus alternative to regular milk, while oatmeal contains fiber with detoxing properties.
  • Blueberries are rich in antioxidants, and walnuts are a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids.

# Special Features of the Diet

The speaker explains what makes this meal plan special and suitable for improving kidney function.

  • The diet is completely plant-based and low in protein but not
    excessively low. It aims to minimize phosphorus and acidity without
    compromising protein intake.
  • Plant-based sources of protein with high biological value, such as soy, are included in the diet.
  • The diet does not require expensive and hard-to-find keto analogues, making it more accessible for patients.

# Beans in the Renal Diet

The speaker addresses the misconception that beans are forbidden in a renal diet.

  • While beans were previously restricted, they can be included in moderation as a source of protein.
  • The trial’s eating plan includes tofu and veggies stir fry, which incorporates soy as a protein source.
  • Personalization and consulting with a doctor are still

# National Kidney Foundation and Beans

  • Beans are rich in iron, low in fats and calories, and a good source of protein.
  • It is important to ensure the right amount of protein intake when including beans in the diet.

# Protein Intake Calculation

  • Protein intake should be calculated based on 0.65 grams per kilogram of ideal body weight.
  • Consultation with a renal dietitian is necessary to determine the appropriate protein intake.

# Nutrient Limitations and Dietary Options

  • Phosphorus, certain fats, and protein need to be limited in the diet for kidney disease patients.
  • Carbohydrates are not necessarily bad for kidney disease patients.
  • The focus should be on healthy carbs with low glycemic index (GI).
  • Added sugar and ultra processed carbs should be avoided.

# Misinformation about Carbs

  • Not all carbs are bad; natural sugars from fruits and vegetables are safe.
  • Certain carbs can be healthy for kidney disease patients, even those with diabetes.
  • A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition showed that a
    significant portion of calories for stage four kidney disease patients
    came from carbohydrates.

# Importance of Carbs for Kidney Disease Patients

  • Despite misconceptions, scientific evidence supports getting a large
    part of calorie intake from carbs for kidney disease patients.
  • The study mentioned earlier demonstrated improved kidney function in patients who consumed a significant amount of carbs.

# Sources and Amount of Carbs

  • The study revealed that around 365 grams of carbs per day were consumed by the patients.
  • Natural and low GI carb sources are recommended, while added sugar and ultra processed carbs should be limited.
