There is conflicting evidence regarding the effects of high protein intake on kidney health, especially as it relates to age. We investigated the short-term effects of a high-protein diet on kidney function and systemic acid-base homeostasis in older compared to younger adults. The subjects were healthy men and women either between the ages of 25 and 40 years (n=12) or 55 and 70 years (n=10). They underwent a two-period crossover trial with each period consisting of 2 weeks of usual diet… CONTINUE READING
