: I talked to a nephrologist today about the consumption of protein in excess of 150 grams of
: protein with and with AS use and his reply was:
: There was a study of men who took excess protein (I think >than 150 grams) and divided into groups who used AS
: and those who did not and those who ate smaller amount of protein with out AS. These
: men were then followed for 30 years after the study...
: The results showed that the men who took excess protein developed renal sclerosis more so than those who did not
: and as a consequence ended up in renal dialysis. Those who took AS had even greater
: destruction. I guess I'm heading for the renal lab when I'm fifty or so... but I'll
: be the best looking one there.
Has to do with the nitrogen thats left when aminos
are burned for fuel on a strict protein diet. I asked
my anatomy professor who is also a BB and chiropractor
about this awhile back and said that the problem
is alleviated with excessive water consumption. So
if you're on an excessively high protein diet, drink
excessively high amounts of water to reduce the kidney
stress problem. I guess the water dilutes the nitrogen?
