Leafy greens and CKD: Follow a plant-based diet to lower your risk of chronic kidney disease

(Natural News) The consumption of plant-based diets have become more common, and for good reason: Numerous studies have shown that plant foods and plant-based nutrients support overall health in many ways. One study has recently discovered a link between healthy plant-based diets and kidney health. Published in the April 2019 issue of the Clinical Journal...

This study suggests that genetic defects in RMND1 gene alters the mitochondrial energy metabolism leading to the accumulation of ceramide, and subsequently promote dysregulated apoptosis and tissue necrosis in kidneys.

The results indicated that the high dosage Pm1 (H.Pm1) group demonstrated lower incide...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewScience has been used as a tool of colonialism, and aspects of science privilege researchers in the global North (USA and Europe). The environmental justice and worker health movements in the USA and globally have influenced aspects of how occupational and environmental health research is conceived and conducted so that it is more equitable. This review provides a case example of research in the area of chronic kidney disease of unknown origin (CKDu).Recent FindingsIn the present work, the author describes aspects of community-based participatory research and anti-colonial research that influence a...

Authors: Takei N, Watanabe N, Nakajo M Abstract Dietary therapy through a low-protein diet (LPD) has long been used for preserving the renal function of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Reducing the amount of protein ingested from rice would make it possible to allocate the difference to side dishes, thereby improving the quality of meals and facilitating adherence to LPD. If it is possible to remove protein from rice, it would minimize the need to cut down on main dishes and make it easier for patients to follow the LPD. We developed exclusive technology for digesting and removing protein from rice grai...

AbstractThe increased prevalence of aging-related chronic kidney disease (CKD) among humans is a problem worldwide. Aged cotton rats (Sigmodon hispidus) are considered novel model animals for studying CKD, especially as the females develop severe tubulointerstitial lesions with anemia. To investigate the renal pathologic features in aged male cotton rats and their characteristic glomerular injuries, the animals were divided into young, adult, old-aged, and advanced-aged groups (1 –4, 5–8, 9–12, and 13–17 months, respectively) and pathologically analyzed. Anemia and renal dysfunction, as indicated by...

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is strongly associated with an increased risk of stroke, small vessel disease, and vascular dementia. Common vascular factors for stroke, such as hypertension, diabetes, and atrial fibrillation, are more prevalent in CKD patients, accounting for this association. However, factors unique to these patients, such as uraemia, oxidative stress, mineral and bone abnormalities, as well as dialysis-related factors are also believed to contribute to risk. Despite improvements in stroke treatment and survival in the general population, the rate of improvement in patients with CKD, especially those who ar...

Authors: Wan TM, Iyer DN, Ng L Abstract Evolutionary medicine has proven helpful to understand the origin of human disease, e.g. in identifying causal roles of recent environmental changes impacting on human physiology (environment-phenotype mismatch). In contrast, diseases affecting only a limited number of members of a species often originate from evolutionary trade-offs for usually physiologic adaptations assuring reproductive success in the context of extrinsic threats. For example, the G1 and G2 variants of the APOL1 gene supporting control of Trypanosoma infection come with the trade-off that they promote the...

In the present study, the data from patients with CrGN were retrospectively analyzed at a tertiary medical center in China with the aim of investigating the clinicopathological features and the association of the type of CrGN with the prognosis. The renal biopsies of 49 patients diagnosed wi...
