Myth: The More Protein You Eat the Better Our body needs protein to repair damaged tissues and build hormones, enzymes, and other things. Too much protein can raise the risk for osteoporosis and kidney stones . . That's because high-protein diets cause calcium to slip through the kidneys, into the urinary tract. In people with poor kidney function - often the result of urinary infections, diabetes, or high blood pressure - high-protein diets also tend to accelerate the loss of kidney function Kidneys filter and remove the waste product and toxins from our body like Urea and Creatinine.
