"Dietary potassium protects type 2 diabetes patients against heart, kidney disease"

"Dietary potassium has been found to protect type 2 diabetes patients against heart and kidney disease. The researchers found that higher levels of urinary potassium excretion – which is related to the amount taken in – is linked with the slower decline of kidney function and lower incidences of cardiovascular complications among type 2 diabetes patients.

The findings were published in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology.

Type 2 diabetes patients are at a higher risk of kidney failure and heart disease. Researchers studied 623 type 2 diabetics with normal kidney functions. Researchers aimed to uncover if higher sodium and potassium intake are associated with a higher risk of heart and kidney disease."
