Eating for kidney health, with guest John Babich, on Upstate's The Informed Patient podcast

Rethinking the risks of a plant-based diet for kidney patients

People with kidney disease traditionally have been told to restrict their intake of plant foods. Some researchers are questioning that advice. John Babich, a third-year student in Upstate’s Norton College of Medicine, explains the benefits of a plant-based diet, even for people with kidney disease. His paper on this subject was published in the journal Advances in Kidney Disease and Health.
