Summary: In healthy obese individuals, a low-carbohydrate high-protein weight-loss diet over 2 years was not associated with noticeably harmful effects on GFR, albuminuria, or fluid and electrolyte balance compared with a low-fat diet.

Dietary protein intake and renal function

URL: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/16174292/

Journal: Nutrition & Metabolism

 Publication Date: 09/2005

 Summary: This paper reviews the available evidence that increased dietary protein intake is a health concern in terms of the potential to initiate or promote renal disease. While protein restriction may be appropriate for treatment of existing kidney disease, we find no significant evidence for a detrimental effect of high protein intakes on kidney function in healthy persons after centuries of a high protein Western diet.

Journal: American Journal of Physiology – Renal Physiology

Publication Date: 04/1986

Summary: The response of eating a meat meal on kidney function was measured in 10 healthy volunteers. Kidney function (GFR) and renal blood/plasma flow increased in most (8/10) subjects, although the amount increase was not statistically significant.
