Cardiac problems are still the number one cause of disability or death. Heart disease has stayed at the top of the list even as other medical issues have shuffled around below it. One of those that has bubbled up is kidney disease. Problems with the kidneys can be very serious, but are often overlooked until a patient ends up needing a transplant. And, while hoping for one to become available, is required to deal with regular kidney dialysis to stave off the problems that come with kidney failure.
Over twelve percent of Americans have persistent kidney disease, even though most go undiagnosed. Over seventy five percent of all kidney problems are unrecognized, which is a major problem since early prevention and treatment is often the only thing that can avoid dialysis or transplant.

When sugar is consumed, it has a number of effects upon the body. Including changes in both blood pressure and uric acid; which put added physical stress on the kidneys. So to, animal fats have a direct effect upon kidney function. Over time, this can turn from stress into damage, or worse.
