Nutrition for healthy kidney function with Nephrologist Dr Shivam Joshi

May 20, 2020

In Episode 103 I sit down with Dr Shivam Joshi a nephrologist working in NYC to explore Nephrology, the fascinating area of medicine dedicated to kidney health. Whether you have kidney disease, know someone with kidney disease or simply want to learn about protein consumption and kidney health I believe you will find this episode particularly informative.

In this episode we cover:

• What is the role of our kidneys
• What Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is and how many people it affects
• Major risk factors for CKD
• Different stages of CKD
• Reversing/Managing CKD
• Dialysis
• Kidney transplants
• Evidence based recommendations for nutrition for those with CKD
• High versus low carbohydrate diets
• Kidney stones
• Protein consumption & kidney health
• The ancestral diet
• and much more
