How To Reduce Inflammation In Kidney Transplant

Reducing Inflammation To Prevent Kidney Transplant Loss:

Reducing inflammation for Kidney transplant recipients is extremely important. A recent study found that kidney transplant recipients who had higher inflammation based on 11 markers lost their kidney transplant sooner than those who actively reduce inflammation. Likewise, a separate study found that Inflammation in the early stages after kidney transplantation is associated with increased long-term all-cause mortality.


Here’s what you can do to reduce inflammation after transplantation: Strictly follow a diet that is low in salt, cut out fried foods, junk foods, drop the sodas and energy drinks, as well as the heavy proteins like red meats. A healthy kidney diet strongly recommends plant proteins over animal proteins as they cause less inflammation. Make sure you eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, and drink plenty of water. Once you’re stable make sure you are taking supplements to help reduce kidney inflammation. One of the supplements we recommend is an Omega 3 that is high in EPA. We offer a great product called Kidney Shield that conveniently offers this exact nutrient. Here is a link to our website where you can check it out:
