Chronic Kidney Disease and Protein

There are many parts of living with chronic illness that can be confusing. Navigating what you can and cannot eat can be a big challenge to overcome.

Protein restrictions are one of those rules that many patients get tripped up on. Some kidney disease patients are told to carefully monitor or even restrict protein intake.

Protein is an important component to just about everyone's diet. You need protein to help build healthy muscles, heal injuries, and more.

Protein is found in so many foods. Most people know that most meats, eggs, and dairy products have lots of protein, but there are many other sources as well.

There is such a thing as too much protein, especially if you have chronic kidney disease.

In an otherwise healthy person, too much protein can cause you to gain weight, dehydrate, and can actually cause kidney problems.
