High-Protein Diets and Kidney Disease

High-Protein Diets

Rapid weight-loss diets, which is increasingly popular among the young generations, are usually based on a high-protein intake and a very limited amount of carbohydrates. Although there is some evidence that these diets lead to a rapid weight loss, it is still unclear whether these results are sustainable in the longer-term. In other words: you may gain weight – when you end your diet – as fast as you lost it. Besides, some studies suggest that high-protein intake may lead to long-term side effects, affecting your kidneys.
