He was able to stabilize his renal function for more than 10 years with a low-protein diet
However, at older ages, it may be important to avoid a low-protein diet
to allow the maintenance of healthy weight and protection from frailty.
Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) was significantly lower among those 50 to 65 years old with low protein intake, while for those 65-plus the difference between the effects that high- and low-protein diets
had on IGF-1 were insignificant.
Caption: Dead meat Middle-aged people who ate low-protein diets
died at lower rates than those on moderate- or high-protein diets.
Research evidence is not conclusive on the effectiveness of low-protein diets
, particularly in early stages of CKD and this intervention is not recommended until late in the disease.
Overeating produced significantly less weight gain in the low-protein diet
Some research has suggested that a low-fat, low-protein diet
may be best for people with SAD.
Interestingly, we found that low-protein diet
decreased VLDL secretion at all time points with no statistical significance (Figure 2B).
Because most high-protein foods are also high in purines, veterinarians often recommend switching urate-forming dogs to a low-protein diet
After beginning with a very low-calorie diet, the subjects were divided into a low-carb or low-protein diet
We were told by a vet that our Shetland sheepdog puppy would need a low-protein diet
for the rest of his life, which means vegetables only, no meat.
For five years he survived on a low-protein diet
to fight the disorder which prevents the body from processing certain proteins in food.
