Methods

This study looked at the available evidence from published studies to determine whether a healthy dietary pattern could prevent the incidence of chronic kidney disease. A healthy diet was defined as one that included fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, fish, and low-fat dairy, with lower intakes of red/processed meats, sodium, and sugar-sweetened beverages.

Key Findings

Results from eighteen studies involving 630,108 adults showed that a healthy dietary pattern was associated with 30% lower incidence of chronic kidney disease.
