The researchers speculate that hemp protein contains large amounts of arginine, and arginine supports kidney functioning. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Potentially yes: High protein diets are potentially harmful because the protein load induces an increase in kidney filter pressure to excrete unused protein. The technical term is hyperfiltration and glomerular hypertension. The thought is the higher pressures induce more shear force injury on the walls of the kidney filter blood vessels damaging them and thus hastening the decline in kidney function. ...Read more

I am T1 Diabetic, had a blood test, had 1000 protein leakage from kidney. Creatine and other kidney tests all show healthy kidney. What's wrong?
