According to the November issue of the American Journal of Kidney Diseases, eating fish twice a week could help people with diabetes to lower their risk of developing kidney disease .
The report was based on work by British researchers, who analysed results from over 22,000 who were part of a large cancer study. The respondents answered questions about diet habits, including how much fish they ate.
Amanda Adler, epidemiologist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, reportedly commented: ” Protein in the urine is one of the earliest signs of kidney disease, a serious complication of diabetes . We didn’t ask about the type of fish people ate, but in this bit of England people eat cod, plaice, haddock, canned tuna. Even fish and chips would have been included.”
