: Can any one tell me how a high protien diet can affect a diabetics kidneys different than a person with out it? Let me know as soon as possible!!!! Thank you.

Type I or Type II diabetic? And by high protein, I assume you actually mean a low carbohydrate diet such as Dr. Atkins, Protein Power, or Dr. Bernsteins Diabetes Solution. If the kidneys are healthy to start with, there should be no problems on a low carb diet if bloodsugar is controlled. If bloodsugar is not controlled and you begin spilling sugar into the urine you could get into ketoacidosis; however, this is very unlikely if you are a Type II diabetic and follow the low carb diet which naturally limits the bloodsugar level. Dr. Bernsteins book explains this. Alan S.
