Studying data collected from 2600 participants, researchers have found that:
- A diet high in “energy-dense, nutrient-poor sources of carbohydrates” results in a significantly increased risk of incident chronic kidney disease.
- Conversely, the higher your intake of cereal fiber, the lower your risk of CKD.
And just in case you have any loved ones who thrive on this sort of Homer Simpson-esque diet, keep in mind that many people are not diagnosed with CKD until they lave lost much of their kidney function and that there is no cure for CKD.
Untreated, it usually progresses to end-stage renal disease.
