does garlic treats kidney disease?

1 doctor answer
Dr. George Klauber
Specializes in Pediatric Urology
Indirectly: Garlic tends to lower body cholesterol and inflammation, thus blood flow to kidneys may improve slightly by keeping arteries to kidneys somewhat cleaner. May also reduce any inflammatory swelling in kidneys as in pyelonephritis. Otherwise, in itself does not dieectly treat kidney disease.
