Can Kidney Disease Patients Eat Whey Protein

Can Kidney Disease Patients Eat Whey ProteinGenerally speaking, kidney disease patients are suggested to have a low quantities but high-quality protein diet, so as to reduce the kidneys’ burden and protect remaining renal function. However, can kidney disease patients eat why protein? Follow me and find out the answer.

Is whey protein OK to eat for kidney disease patients?

Frankly speaking, there is no specific food that patients can eat or not, because different people have different illness conditions. In other words, whether you can eat something or not depends on your certain illness condition. Generally speaking, patients with kidney damage are suggested to have a low-protein diet which can produce few wastes.

Whey protein comes from cow’s milk. The process of cow’s milk being turned into cheese creates whey protein as a byproduct. Whey protein is a complete and high quality protein with all the essential amnio acids. For healthy people, whey protein works to repair and grow muscle tisuues, especially after working out. And whey protein is highly recommended for people with cardiovascular complications. For people with kidney disease who are on the dialysis, whey happens to be a great source of high-quality protein. A diet rich in protein is vital for fighting infection, healing wounds and achieving a good nutritional status.


Although it can be consumed by kidney disease patients, what I want to stress is that you should take protein in right amount. Because too much whey protein can be a huge burden for the damaged kidneys. If kidney problems already exist, increased intake of protein can cause further damage, and it is suggested that protein be taken in moderation and with the consent of a doctor.
