Make a Dash for the DASH Diet to Prevent Kidney Failure

Senior man enjoying glass of juiceAccording to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), about 10% of the American population has some form of chronic kidney disease, which also happens to be the ninth leading cause of death in the United States, based on a report from Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  Symptoms of renal failure include the following:

  • Reduced urine
  • Shortness of breath
  • Swelling in the legs, ankle and feet
  • Pain and/or pressure in the chest area
  • Seizures
  • Nausea
  • Chronic fatigue or drowsiness
  • Cognitive confusion

Studies show that following a DASH diet will help prevent or delay the onset of kidney failure.  The acronym stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension; although this was originally for adults with high blood pressure, researchers found that this dietary plan is just as effective in preventing kidney disease.
