    Thai people eat too much salty food and risk suffering from kidney disease

    Thai people eat too much salty food and risk suffering from kidney diseases
    in General | April 5, 2016 12:03 am

    Thais are at risk of suffering from chronic kidney diseases because they have the habit of adding food seasoning such as fish sauce, soybean sauce and shrimp paste to add flavours to their food.

    For normal people it doesn't matter if you eat too much salt the kidney just filter it out without any problems.
    Too much sugar is a complete different thing and a big problem.

    Do you even read the stuff before you fire off your mind-farts? The post, let alone the article, are about the kidney problems caused by dealing all the salt!

    Almost all modern societies show higher blood pressure levels in older people. Isolated tribes, where salt is not a predominant additive, don't show these increases.

    BTW, who the hell are these "normal" people you keep bringing up?

    Kidney problems are rare and kidney problems on people who aren't overweight are extreme rare.
    If you drink enough liquids it is no problem at all.
    If you look at some tribes that eat extreme amounts of salt.....salted fish, spearhunting fisher they don't have any kidney problems.

    The problem is, if being extreme overweight, problems with sugar (high blood sugar damage the kidney, a damaged kidney of course can't handle extra workload), lots of protein in your diet (which is automatic if you eat way too much), high blood pressure, no exercise etc... than too much salt might be too much for the overloaded body.....

    20 years ago at university the professors already banged their head against the wall about that salt nonsense. If you drink enough the salt leaves the body as fast as you eat it. If you don't drink enough, you dehydrate and that brings big stress on the kidney and it kind of poison itself. But that is a complete different problem....Problem of not drinking enough.

    In Thailand with the lots of sweating it can even happen that you have too little salt, therefor every 7/11 sells these rehydration salt bags which you have to mix with water. Salt with some flavor....


    "adding that the number of patients requiring dialysis has increased about 15 percent annually." Look up how the average body weight in Thailand increases and how the rate of diabetics increase. In Thailand 8% of the population has diabetics. They must leave out the coke not the fish sauce to help their kidney.

    Diabetes leads to heart disease and kidney disease. This is a fact. Kidney disease is no fun, especially for someone with heart disease. Dialysis takes a toll on the heart. How long do you think someone with heart failure can live on dialysis?

    Both excess sugar and excess salt are enemies. The body gets enough sodium on a healthy diet, without adding salt. I admit to loving fish sauce and soy sauce. We become addicts in our early childhood, with no ill intent by our parents. We all need to learn better.

    Re: Thai people eat too much salty food and risk suffering from kidney disease

    After I started reading this thread, I did some reseach on msg. My wife buys a bag of it each time we go to Tesco. Some articles say it is bad, and some not. I even thought that it was just salt, but it is a very popular flavour enhancer, particularly in Asia.
    In the 7/ 11 stores around Thailand, and also the small family stores, the shelves ar brimming with those rubbish chip type things. Also very sweet drinks, which the smaller kids seem to live on.
    If it's not true, don't say it. If it's not yours, don't take it. If it's not right, don't do it.

    I have been using Lo-Salt-66% less sodium -for 30 years or more and my last Type 2 diabetes results say my kidneys are fine.
    Sodium is the poison in table salt.
    The only way to avoid sodium in food is to prepare all your food from scratch as even mass produced bread is packed with the stuff.
