LivingTheCRWay.com members who participated in or listened to the recent expert teleconference with Dr. Warren Bromberg gained a valuable insights on kidney health. One of the things he presented was how the kidneys relate to heart and brain health. His opinions are strongly supported. This study*, for example, showed that glomerular filtration rate GFR (glomeruli are tiny ball-shaped structures composed of capillary blood vessels, actively involved in the filtration of the blood to form urine) predicts short term mortality of hospitalized heart attack patients.

Dietary factors affect GFR. In fact, the same risk factors that are associated with kidney stones may also predict accumulation of debris that worsens kidney function over time. This underscores a valuable function of the NutriBase 10 CR Way Longer Life Edition Software: generating a report that shows dietary risk factors, associated with kidney stones. We have written a lot about kidney stones and oxalates. Other factors are important too, including water intake and dietary sodium, phosphorous, potassium, magnesium, protein, fat, calcium and Vitamin C supplements. Any one of these could determine whether or not debris accumulates in your kidneys.
If you have kidney problems, a nephrologist will order a urine test to see what concentrations of many of these factors are present. However, the role played by diet in all of this is largely guesswork. The NutriBase 10 CR Way Longer Life Edition Software changes that. It’s now possible to ascertain more accurately how diet may affect GFR.

Using the software to plan meals that reduce other kidney stone risk factors too, like phosphate and sodium is easy.
One of the huge benefits of working with Dr. Bromberg has been his ultrasound tracking of my kidneys. We’ve been able to see significant differences in actual debris accumulation and inflammation status when comparing the results of high oxalate and low oxalate meals. This is why we built kidney stone management tools into the new NutriBase 10 CR Way Longer Life Edition Software was important. It can also be used to manage risk factors of many other diseases including Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer.
The CR Way teleconference on Saturday, Nov. 24, 4:00 PM (ET) will discuss how to use the software to manage kidney and other disease risk factors.
