Hi! I am so excited to find this place. I lost a kidney in 1997 due to a sports accident. I competed in my first bodybuilding competition in 2010 but was told the high (animal) protein diet was too hard on my remaining kidney and it was highly suggested I stop. I tried again in 2012 but ended up in stage 4 of chronic kidney failure 2 weeks before the show and had to stop immediately or risk dialysis. I have gained 20 pounds since then. I was wondering if anyone has any experience/information on vegan protein and effects on the kidney.
Thanks!

Hello and welcome, what is your name? I would suggest trying to use the search function in the upper right hand corner for kidney failure. From an non professional point of view though I have heard and read tons of information about how much easier a plant based diet is on your body. I think you are definitely headed in the right direction now.

Hi there.

Here is an informative article from Dr. McDougall which goes into some detail on the topic.

I did not read it all, but it looks like information that you will find useful.
