If your diet consists of pro-inflammatory foods such as processed meat, carbonated beverages and vegetables other than the green leafy and dark yellow variety, you may be at a higher risk of developing kidney failure, researchers, including one of an Indian-origin, suggest.

The findings showed that diets that contribute to inflammation are linked to a higher risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD) progression.

“These findings have implications for the prevention of kidney failure using dietary approaches with low inflammatory potential,” said lead author Tanushree Banerjee, from the University of California-San Fransisco.

Foods that have been positively related to concentrations of inflammatory markers include tomatoes, carbonated beverages, vegetables other than green leafy and dark yellow vegetables, processed meat, red meat, organ meat and fish other than dark-meat fish.

For the study, to be presented at ASN Kidney Week 2018 between October 23-28 at the San Diego Convention Center, the research team studied a national sample of 1,084 adults with CKD.

The team found that 11.1 per cent of the participants developed kidney failure over 14 years of follow-up.

“Nutritional interventions that focus on reducing the inflammatory aspects of diet should be tested for halting the progression of CKD,” Banerjee added.

Undergoing bariatric surgery may significantly lower the risk of developing severe chronic kidney disease and kidney failure, according to a study.

Obesity is a dangerous condition and goes hand in hand with elevated blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases and Type-2 diabetes, which in turn may lead to complications such as chronic kidney disease.

Obesity is also an independent risk factor in developing chronic kidney disease. Different obesity treatment strategies include lifestyle interventions, dietary modification, pharmacological and surgical treatment.

The findings showed that patients with evidence of kidney damage — high levels of protein in the urine — benefited most from surgical treatment, indicating that surgery prevents progression of pre-existing kidney injury towards renal failure.

“The study reported long-term effects of bariatric surgery compared to usual obesity care on incidence of end-stage renal disease alone and in combination with chronic kidney disease stage 4,” said A. Shulman, from the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden.

These results add to a large body of evidence which demonstrates that bariatric surgery, reduces mortality, improves type 2 diabetes and prevents cardiovascular disease and cancer, the researchers added. IANS
