High-protein diets do not affect GFR in healthy individuals

A high-protein diet likely does not adversely influence kidney function or glomerular filtration rate in healthy adults, according to recently published findings. The results contradict the Brenner hypothesis, which proposed that regular consumption of excessive dietary protein has a negative impact on kidney function resulting from a sustained increase in glomerular pressure and renal hyperfiltration. Following this hypothesis, the assumption has been persistent in the decades following the 1982 study, even being applied to healthy individuals who do not have kidney disease. “In somebody
