Nutrition for Healthy Kidney Function | Nephrologist Dr Shivam Joshi

Listen Now

In Episode #103, I sat down with Dr Shivam Joshi to explore nephrology: the fascinating area of medicine dedicated to kidney health. Whether you have kidney disease, know someone with kidney disease, or simply want to learn about protein consumption and kidney health, I believe you will find this episode particularly informative.  

In this episode, we covered the role of our kidneys, and what chronic kidney disease (CKD) is. Dr Joshi shared the risk factors and stages of CKD, how to manage or reverse it, and some evidence-based nutritional recommendations for those with CKD. We also discussed high- versus low-carbohydrate diets, protein consumption and kidney health, and the ancestral diet.
