As a major filtration device built in to your body, your kidneys are obviously pretty important. Whether they’re still healthy or have been suffering problems for some time, there are certain kinds of food that simply are not healthy for your kidneys to deal with. You might even be surprised by the culprits.
The kidneys need to maintain a proper balance of the calcium and phosphorous minerals, removing away the excess under normal circumstances. With kidney disease, the kidneys don't filter away the excess like they should, making dairy less safe to consume. Instead of removing the extra phosphorous, the kidneys will grab calcium from the bones to help keep the balance together. It helps to limit phosphorous-heavy foods with kidney disease, such as yogurt, cheese and milk, to help keep the balance closer to normal levels.
