Kidney is an organ that is useful for the process of regulating fluids in the body and metabolizing substances, poisons, and electrolytes in the body. One way to look at kidney function can be seen from the laboratory results are ureum and creatinine, but it should be seen further whether the occurrence of kidney function disorders only occur temporarily as in conditions of lack of fluids, toxins from certain diseases, for example leptospirosis. While the condition of continuous decline if up to 3 months in a row.
Regarding cassava there has been no further research related to health conditions with the kidneys but several studies have shown that cassava is a good source of energy, has a role to reduce cholesterol, helps increase binding of iron minerals so as to prevent blood deficiency, and helps to metabolize because it has a rich content of vitamins B.
For a diet that has been provided and regulated by a nutritionist as mentioned, it should be consulted further about the nutritional content and their respective uses to find out more.
