At KidneyRD, we have some incredible tools to help those with autoimmune kidney disease or inflammatory conditions stop the guessing game and get some powerful results.
How autoimmune conditions affect kidneys
KidneyRD recognizes that every person is different. Some individuals may be sensitive to certain foods while others are not. Food sensitivities are often linked to an autoimmune response. Autoimmune simply put, is a confusion that is taking place in the immune system.
While science has not yet found an exact cause of autoimmune conditions, we do know that they can have a dramatic effect on our bodies’ organs. We also know what a person eats can have a direct reaction in individuals suffering from an autoimmune condition. The most common reaction often being the inflammation of body tissue (internal and external).
To put it simply autoimmune conditions affect kidneys and other organs when they cause them to become inflamed or when the body sends out an autoimmune response attacking the healthy cells that make up the tissue or lining of the kidneys.
KidneyRD aims to work with you to find the dietary causes of your inflammation and provide you with both a plan and tools to prevent autoimmune reactions.
How inflammation affects kidney function
When your kidneys become inflamed it can lead to scarring and decreased blood flow. This has the potential to lead to a wide number of different issues including Chronic Kidney Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Cardiovascular disease.
At KidneyRD we use specialized testing and individualized protocols for nutrition to uncover root cause of autoimmune conditions with symptoms of inflammation.
How nutrition and diet can help improve inflammation caused by autoimmune conditions
If your autoimmune condition is being exacerbated by certain foods in your diet it will often lead to inflammation of certain organs. In addition, it can lead to other adverse reactions that affect everything from your mobility to your mental state. The first step to locating the foods that are affecting your body and causing an autoimmune response is a food sensitivity test. Here at KidneyRD we highly recommend the MRT test followed by the LEAP Eating Plan.
What is the MRT test?
Mediator Release Testing (MRT) is a patented blood test that quantifies how strongly your immune cells react to the foods and food chemicals tested by measuring intracellular mediator release indirectly. When released from immune cells, chemical mediators such as histamine, cytokines, and prostaglandins produce damaging effects on the body’s tissues, leading to the development of symptoms. A blinded peer-reviewed scientific study showed MRT to have the highest level of accuracy of any food sensitivity blood test (94.5% sensitivity, and 91.8% specificity). The test covers 140 different foods and 30 different chemicals. Removing the need for a long period of trial and error to find what works for you.
What is LEAP?
Lifestyle Eating and Performance (LEAP) is the individualized eating plan based on your MRT results. It is individualized therapy taking into account your medical history and current health plus your blood chemical profile. The LEAP ImmunoCalm Dietary Program is focused on decreasing inflammation in your body and resolving the source of it. Unlike many medications that often can only treat symptoms, this eating plan actually treats the root cause. If you would like more information on the process please check below for testimonials from KidneyRD clients who have already been through the program.
