Low Phosphorus Diet Helps Protect Your Kidneys

According to the National Kidney Foundation, up to 40% of type 2 diabetes patients and 30% of type 1 diabetes patients will develop kidney problems or failure. During this point, the patient becomes more vulnerable to other complications as the kidneys are not able to filter waste and excess minerals, especially phosphorus, from the body. Doctors recommend a low phosphorus diet for people with kidney problems because high phosphorus levels or hyperphosphatemia can increases risk of bone disease and heart disease and can lead to problems like fatigue, joint pain etc.
