    Type 2 diabetics with renal disease who were assigned to eat a moderate protein diet containing at least 25% protein lost an average of 21.3 lbs after one year versus 14.5 lbs for those assigned to eat a standard protein diet containing 15% protein, however, the difference was not statistically significant.

    People in the moderate protein diet ate an average of 19 grams more protein per day than those on the standard protein diet.

    Neither of these diets affected renal function or albuminuria or blood pressure.

    “Weight loss improved renal function, but differences in dietary protein had no effect,” the authors concluded.
