New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Can Keto (Ketogenic Diet) Reverse Kidney Disease??
so in this video I’m going to answer a question that someone wanted to know can Quito actually reverse kidney disease out of all the things that destroy the kidney insulin and high sugar is at the top of the list this is why so many diabetics are getting kidney disease high levels of glucose and insulin create oxidative damage to four tissues the brain and nerve tissue I’m considering it as one the heart and vessels the eye and the kidney the kidney is very susceptible to oxidative damage from high blood sugar and high insulin now there was a very interesting study that I put a link down below you can check it out it was done for eight weeks it was unwise but it showed a complete reversal of the elbe Yuman creatine ratio okay using the ketogenic diet because beta hydroxy butyrate which is at a ketone not only can provide an alternative fuel but it has some real interesting benefits to the kidney including the big one which is decreasing oxidative stress so Kido basically can counter the damage and destruction from a high carb diet and in just eight weeks there was a partial recovery of kidney damage so I’d be curious to see if they did it longer what would happen ketones by itself go beyond just providing an alternative fuel they actually have therapeutic benefits as well there’s different levels of damage to the kidney different stages okay stage 1 2 3 4 5 which is end-stage renal failure and in this stage the kidney which is a filter just could no longer a filter anymore can’t filter the blood so you’re gonna have excessive amounts of certain nutrients and deficiencies of other nutrients so if you’re at this stage you need to check with your doctor because you can’t just supplement too much potassium for example but what I want to talk about is before you get to this stage okay I hear this all the time oh I can’t take potassium because it’s dangerous to the kidney the true data is that potassium can actually protect the kidney against damage I’ll put some links down below you can check that out so it’s totally okay to take potassium in we need 4700 milligrams every single day now if you’re doing in a minute fasting okay you’ll need less the requirements go down because you’re recycling and you’re you’re becoming more efficient with your minerals and other nutrients but potassium is very very beneficial for the kidney the other problem that people run into when the kidney becomes damaged is protein in the body you have a protein deficiency and you actually end up filling up with fluid you’re getting edema and taking certain oral amino acids can slow down the progression of kidney damage okay so check with your doctor on that I’ve put some links down below for just the research that you can give your doctor if you need to so if you really look at what’s happening to the kidney you have all this glucose this refined carb the sugar the insulin it’s destroying the kidney function but those complications from that oxidation occur more when there’s not enough nutrients so it’s very very important to prevent this problem by consuming nutrient-dense foods it’s the nutrients in the food that protect against the side effects and the complications of the oxidation and you definitely want to be on a low-carb diet for sure this is very very beneficial for the kidney itself so ultimately the goal is to prevent this problem if you’re already at stage 5 work with your doctor to see what you can eat what you can’t eat but I would try to follow a healthy keto plan and in a minute fasting as closely as possible but there are certain types of foods that you’re gonna have to avoid and realize that you do not have to avoid potassium if you’re in these earlier stages alright thanks for watching so if you want to get notified with all my content click the notification bell next to subscribed

In this video, Dr. Berg answers the question about ketogenic diet and reversing kidney disease. High levels of glucose and insulin create oxidative damage to four tissues; brain (nerves), heart, eye and kidney. B-hydroxybutyrate that is in ketone can provide an alternative fuel, it also has benefits to the kidney and decreases oxidative stress. Ketosis can counter the damage from a high carb diet.
• Potassium is protective to the kidney
• Certain amino acid can slow progress of kidney damage
• It is important to consume nutrient-dense foods – it protects the side effects and complications of the oxidation
• low carb diet – it is very beneficial to the kidney
